The artist's paintings not only depicted the most important works of the 20th century. themes, - war, space exploration, nature changed by man and technology - but also suggested ways to look at them.

 

Today, the work of Igor Piekurs allows a new look at the dramatic 20th century. history in the 21st century prism, or vice versa - to see current cataclysms (pandemic, war in Ukraine) through the eyes of an artist. Not only historical parallels, but also the approaching global art field encourages Piekur's work to be evaluated in a wider cultural context, not only to delve into the uniqueness of his artistic thinking, but also to reveal interactions with current trends in Western art. These connections were highlighted by international and Lithuanian artists' exhibitions, where Piekur's works played an important role as a timer of the era, revealing the links between art, scientific experiments and life.

 

In this book, we look at the work of Igor Piekurs from the 21st century. perspectives where world events, climate change, technological developments and new theoretical approaches highlight what the artist has opened up in his works using the vocabulary of painting available to him. However, when placed in new contexts, the artist's works are revealed to be much more complex both in terms of ideas and methods of representation. Piekur's torn, torn, negative and replicated landscapes speak not only about the transformations of nature, but also about the ecological concern for the planet Earth and the future of our everyday earth."
