Post-Epileptic Shock Vision, 2017

Evaldas Jansas‘ work is documentary, autobiographical and often brutal. The authentic capturing of altered states of consciousness or physical experiences is an important element in his art.

The painting Post-Epileptic Shock Vision refers to animals who live in the human subconscious. The artist‘s self-portrait is visible in the lower right portion of the painting. The fighting elephants symbolize two sides of one personality – a serious internal conflict.

In his other two paintings, Jansas recounts stories in which human subjects become increasingly more animalistic. Characters dressed as rabbits embody the animals‘ significance as a symbol of eroticism, and suggest references to “zuikelis“, or little rabbit, a Lithuanian term of endearment for a loved one. Rabbits also symbolize exceptional fertility, a trait that has ensured their expansion all over the world. In Western Europe today, however, humans have nearly destroyed the entire rabbit population.
