Vytautas Šerys. A Retrospective
The work of Vytautas Šerys (1931-2006), despite spanning almost five decades and belonging to two historical periods, the Soviet era and the subsequent period of independence, nevertheless projects an image of integrity. Its integral nature stems from the artist's determined and focused passage to his late creative period, and from his understanding that different forms of artistic expression, whether they be sculpture, painting, monotype or drawing, are equally important. Šerys' integrity rests on the consistency of his experimentation in form, and on his vision of the surrounding world as a certain design, as well as his key artistic principles and his distinctive features, such as controlled chance, incompleteness and a multiplicity of meaning. In addition, his work, especially the work from his later period, is a reflection of the utopia of European Modernist culture: l'art pour l'art.
