A contemporary woman is featuring in my art work – her lines, forms, beauty rituals and surroundings.

Cooperating with the World Lithuanian Youth Association an idea was born to create a XXI century interpretation of the XIX century K. Ruseckas’ painting “Pjovėja” (“The Reaper Girl”).
Art is a common joy for all, therefore I decided to find a girl, who would embody K. Ruseckas’ “The Reaper Girl” on Facebook.

The famous Reaper Girl became Milvydė Arlauskaitė. When I saw her in my studio I was filled with joy, because the girl gave meaning to all the colors, emotions and senses typical to a contemporary Lithuanian girl.

With the help of a brush several elements were transformed from K. Ruseckas’ “The Reaper Girl” to today’s modern Lithuanian girl: the active and ever rushing woman.

It feels good to create for Lithuania, to express love with my works, to promote the feeling of belonging.

The contemporary Lithuanian girl moved from canvas into the hearts of many Lithuanians.

Girl’s posture is recognizable and typical to the modern selfies – tilted head, puffed up lips and romantic look in the eyes.

Every member of the community participating in the Naisiai Summer Festival could become a part of the whole creation.

The entire collage comprised 5348 magazine clippings.

The portrait of the Lithuanian girl reflects not only a contemporary woman, but also the great love to Lithuania.
