Dalia Kirkutienė joined to the painters squad with her own bright style. Her painting is very decorative, oriented to an optical art. The canvas glow with a swum out, like, maximized image. The flicker provokes the illusion of secrecy. Her paintbrush is boldly manipulating with motives: the landscape, plants, living beings. Strokes, transformed to squares, cover each other while they‘re extracting interesting colors and shapes consonance, or, like with a light plate, cover with a translucent net, and after it, the illusion reveals itself. Dalia Kirkutienė has started her artist path after she graduated from textile study. Many years she was pouring batic on silk, and a few years ago she gave only to her hobby to paint. Her pieces are closely related to the textile, sometimes the works look like they have been woven. Colors nicely, like threads, intertwine with strokes by extracting very interesting and mysterious glow. In the canvas come out the motives of nature, material, objects, sometimes they are highlighted, sometimes they are hidden behind the fog sheet. Sometimes the works of Dalia Kirkutienė remind a mosaic, like a drawing put from small squares, glows with unexpected combinations by color solutions. The works of the artist are sensuous, impart her perception about the outward things, they mirror moods and experiences. Discovered her own bright style D. Kirkutienė presents new genre searches with each new works tide. Dalia Kirkutienė participates in the exhibitions, organized by Klaipėda gallery, organizes her personal exhibitions.
