About A Loan

This linocut work has a lot of elements that we can use to create a narrative. The title of the work, A Loan, can prompt us to think of any story – from literal to a very metaphorical one. It is like a detective in which one has to find out who is the main character, who is the couple next to him, what does the hand and the key mean in our created story? It is a work of mysteries, with almost a Lynchian feeling, captivating our fantasy and curiosity.

Tadas Gindrenas

Tadas Gindrenas was born in 1979, in Panevezys, Lithuania. In 2008 he graduated from Vilnius Academy of Arts, the Department of Graphics. The unique artistic expression of T. Gindrenas artworks was already noticed while he was studying at the academy.  Unlike many Lithuanian graphic artists, who mostly prefer creating small graphics, T. Gindrenas chose a completely different way – he focuses on large Linocuts, where he usually explores relevant topics of everyday life. The artworks of T. Gindrenas represent people‘s relationships, often marked by various misunderstandings.  As art critics highlight, the atmosphere of city and fashion elements, noticed in T. Gindrenas artworks, can be linked to comic aesthetics.

Linocuts are interesting not only for their subject matters, but also for formal expression, for example, laconic and sometimes even rough performance as well as a tendency to manipulate with colors, especially grey shades. The professional artist usually uses second-hand sheets of linoleum for his artworks in order to reach extremely textured surfaces.

The artist says he does not follow either Lithuanian artists or world art trends - the biggest influence comes from life itself and his personal experiences.
