Andrius Zakarauskas, ‘Bodybuilding (the move)’, 2016, The Rooster Gallery

This painting asserts a parallel between bodybuilding and the painting process, and emphasizes the physical side of an artwork. On the canvas we see the painter in a kind of mirror reflection shaping its surface as if with blows. The painter seems to be present both on this and the other side of the canvas being covered with paint. This duality complicates the relations between the painter and the viewer, and their positions change and intertwine.
