Landscape of Emotions

This wall painting is based on a piece of crumpled paper. Many Tints of grey, black and white match facets in the damaged paper. The pattern resembles a cross-section of granite or other crystalline rock, the starting point is something quite fragile. A crumpled piece of paper is usually thrown away, considered a failure. But often mistakes can open up new pathways. The „wrong” way may turn out to be much more interesting than the original, intended destination. The damage done to a piece of paper is irreversible, therefore it's impossible to make it smooth again once it's been crumpled. Similarly, other forms of damage, psychological, historical or geological, may also be impossible to repair; they remain hidden while at the same time giving shape to the visible landscape.

Consumerism

Philip Grisewood is an illustrator who uses various techniques created by the artist through the years experimenting with different textures and methods of the media. This art work is dedicated to consumerism - the painting is a symbol of fast food, permanently busy lives, not seeing what's going on around, urban pollution and environmental damage. The English term "VOID" is highlighted as in this mural its' meaning is emptiness, vacuum, nothing. The place is chosen to symbolize the transition at the gates of a consumer life, to a completely different world - is a bridge to an art oasis, calmness and different culture.

Pizza Umbrella

The initial approach was to utilize the building's shape when developing the artist concept . They had a lot of fun sketching potential ideas, and ultimately landed on an umbrella raining from inside. The umbrella is made of the artists' favorite food, Pizza. The portal takes them back to their home State of Ohio, and provides a look at the local sea monster "Bessie", who lives in Lake Erie. The Mountains are there to keep a an eye on the land below and provide some nice scenery for the wonderful people of Marijampole.
