Recent Paintings by 91 year-old Orland Park Resident, Karolis Avižienis
My current series of paintings began with COVID. Before the pandemic hit, I was painting landscapes, most of them based on photos taken during my travels in Europe. My palette then was comprised of gentle and cheerful colors: greens, blues, pinks and yellows. COVID caused me to reassess my palette and subject matter. Almost overnight I swapped my beaches and architectural landmarks for abstract, geometrical shapes, with darker, primary colors predominating. Each of my current paintings details demise–of our cities, our society, our planet.
