Snow slowly falls in the city. We take a taxi towards some place near the woods while the night wears its black coat and the purple sky turns grey. White and yellow reflections populate the firmament like pale shaded stars. The landscape fades and looses the shape of its structural corners while silhouettes blur.
We left the car and land our feet on the icy snow. We look left and right and cross a mirrored road. The dreamy scene seems as if someone has just placed a soft thin cotton veil in the horizon, and things start to disappear in the dark silence under the freezing night.
Black trees surround us and the dim street light accompanies our shadows while we start to talk about the beauty of colours as we head to the bus stop. Suddenly the light gets physical and tangible, silver, copper, gold and violet materializes every time the words come out of our mouths. As if invoking a spell we joyfully start to count 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… Fibonacci numbers arouse in this walk joining tactile colours and solid light. Our eyes shine.
Gintautas Trimakas (Vilnius, 1958) recent work has an apparent levity, like a feather falling slowly guided by the wind, therefore the beauty and intensity of his images remains fixed in our memory and starts its own trip in our mind. Neuronal connections awake and wonders suddenly cross inside the crystalline lens of our own camera obscura.
Trimakas has an unconventional eye. His experimental nature, along with his extensive knowledge about photography, allows him to freely explore beyond technique and concept. No secret can hide in the chemical process developed within the dark room or even in plain daylight. Gintautas Trimakas’ empirical mind is inhabited by an interest in mathematics which matches his sharp analytical sight.Thus numbers and its mysteries guide him with accuracy in order to create an intricate and elaborate body of work which challenges the viewer in its illusory yet complex beauty.
