From the artist: For years, I have been unsuccessfully trying to meet the challenge, which for the "old" political order, posed to me from behind our eastern border: Lithuanians, Georgians, Latvians, and even Kazakhs, whom I met at international artistic plein-airs in Poland. They signaled a desire to show my works on their territory in their cultural areas. I was very pleased receiving the invitation from Gintaras Karosas - an outstanding artist, creator, animator and organizer of the Europos Parkas - very significant for contemporary sculpture not only for our part of Europe. The familiarization visit in January confirmed my belief that this is a great place for presenting balancing sculptures. Showing my sculptures in the context of the artworks of many celebrities of modern art gathered by Gintaras is a pleasure and raises the rank of the event.
