"Huupi's treatment of colour reveals her source of inspiration in creating this series – the Mexican architect Luis Barragán (1902–1988), whose few completed buildings in Mexico are undoubtedly architectural gems. The design of his own home has been widely recognised and the building currently functions as the architect's house museum." – Mary-Ann Talvistu "Without light, there would be no colours" (KUNST.EE 4/2021)


Searching for the motifs of contemporary painting

Milda Žvirblytė (1-2/2011)

At the request of KUNST.EE Milda Žvirblytė analyses the processes of change in Lithuanian painting, thereby completing the discussion held on the same subject in Estonian art (see KUNST.EE 2010, No. 3–4).
In recent years international art publications (Artforum, Texte Zur Kunst and others) have published a series of reflections on the role of painting in contemporary Western art, art theory and criticism. The main subjects focused on can be divided between two categories: first, how to revive interest in contemporary painting and its strategies in the critical discourse of art, and second, what ways could we expand the dominant theoretical perspective which is rather limited in terms of painting. Drawing on the fact that painting has not belonged within the scope of interest for theoreticians of contemporary Western art for more than thirty years, the gap between art criticism – in which painting hardly seems to exist – and the obvious multitude of contemporary painting strategies is highlighted here.
