On the cobblestone pavement (English Walking up the cobblestone pavement of Old City) – a picture of the British artist Jurita Kalite, made in 2016. The idea of the painting came to Jurita’s in 2016 when she was walking along the Old City with her little friend Terrier Masik.
There is a legend that a happy stone lay in the old town in the middle of the street. On a granite cobble-stone from nature, with colored prodlets, a clear figure of two is two. They say that if you stand on a cobblestone with two lovers, then their desire will come true.
Jurita worked on this composition in the traditions of the Impressionists, using natural light and in the open air. Because the artist wanted to capture a picture of the original city.
This artwork represent a “cocktail” of emotion transmission through color and form, through the combination of application, lines and shapes which determine the mood of the work and an explosive experience of color and soul.
Her attitude to life can be conveyed, she believes, with the help of the warmest color in the color scheme. She began arranging objects in surreal combinations that challenged reason and summoned subconscious and poetic. The artist’s favourite classic music, which filled the work with an invisible presence, can be felt through a combination of only 2 basic colors.
Her art was influenced in its time and places of her residence. The power and scale of a large city, unlimited opportunity to express her emotions and sensations with the help of canvas and paints.
She stubbornly searches for her own manner of filing, experimenting with lines and color rendition.
