Holofernes Beheading Judith 80x100cm. oil on canvas. Currently I am painting pictures inspired by moments of history. I am transforming them and adapt to my world view. Main inspiration for this painting was Judith and Holofernes story from Old Testament. In addition, I met interesting girl named Kornelija and she also inspired me to create this artwork. So, I combined those two things into one painting and I called it: „Holofernes Beheading Judith“. I tried to recontextualize historical moments in my painting. I had chosen classical realistic approach to painting in order to represent more clearly my idea. One of the main idea of this painting is to show human experience in contemporary society. Then I painted this work I always asked myself: what is humanity? Where are the boundaries of humanity? What is society standpoint and opinion towards marginal people? I am not social critic, so I give freedom everybody to interpret this painting as they want. In this painting I was particularly interested in symbols of pop culture – tattoos, piercing, hairstyles etc. To add more power to painting, I have chosen more tragic atmosphere. I do not want to restrict viewer by my narrated form of painting, so I give freedom to interpret humanity as a whole theme. Justinas Krasuckas
