Pobaltis

series of watercolors, 2016

The series of over a hundred watercolor drawings is based on the family film, which was shot in a small village - Pobaltis in Lithuania in the mid 70s. In this project we try to recreate the world of our childhood. Although the drawings are autobiographical and very personal, this project is about the universal nature of childhood memories. By using fluid material on a semitransparent surface we want to evoke associations with celluloid film and old slides. The project is ongoing.
