Kristina Alisauskaite, ‘Potential Realities’, 2017, The Rooster Gallery

A theater set with dancers’ silhouettes is represented in the painting. This creates an ambiguity: the stage as an imitation of reality, or reality as a performance? A metaphor of the world as theater is conveyed. An indefinite, chaotic environment adds a cosmological dimension to the scene, as if asserting that human existence is governed by massive processes that often are beyond cognition, no matter how hard we try.
