The Search for Metaphysical Depth in Antanas Savicki’s (Tony Viber’s) Pictorial Meditations

The article is dedicated to the analysis of a specific creative style of Antanas Savickis (Tony Viber), a younger generation painter. It briefly discusses his creative sources, essential evolutionary turns, experienced influences, contacts with various movements of modern and post-modern art. His paintings are full of creative bursts, expression, spiritual clarification, sadness, woeful anxiety, and other most intimate moods which spread out through sensitive colour shades, and complex interactions between forms, rhythms, lines and factures. Abstract form, quirky line, and emotional colour thus become the fundamental elements of the painter’s plastic language, helping to extract the effects of musicality and harmony from the painting space. The article presents Savickis’ most important works and discusses the means of their artistic expression.


Key Words: Antanas Savickis (Tony Viber), Lithuanian painting, lyrical abstraction, abstract expressionism.


The journal "LOGOS" is mainly devoted to scholarly studies in all areas of philosophy.
