In his works the artist Vladas Tranelis tries to synthesize various means of artistic expression creating an integral aesthetic expanse. The author’s works are distinguished for their decorative image, which like a veil exquisitely covers the man’s emotional world. There are no realistic views in the artist’s pictures. Inner sights, sometimes sights from aside arise colourful mirages and mesmerise spectators by their suggestibility and magic power. All these visions show the author’s philosophical attitude towards the world and express his efforts to embody an ideal of nostalgic and spiritual beauty. It is obvious that the author is attentive to the classical tradition of painting. His works have been influeced by the West European mannerism, baroque, romanticism, surrealism and the secession of the XX century.
Sometimes the autor’s characters are emphatically real, sometimes they are from the world af imagination or simply become theatrical puppets disintegrating into separate elements in the space. A semi abstract vision expanse, which often becomes a labyrinth of swags and ornaments, often prospers with stylized and realistic figures. The author adores the motive of a lonely woman. It can be perceived literally and also as a symbol of the human soul or the world of visions. Furthermore, it can become an allegory of various states of human mind and attitudes. The author opens up a lyrically stylized world of magic visions, where visual methapors, faces, ornate wear, accessories vary kaleidoscopically. Exactly these features and the pecularities of ornamentic details make the author’s works close to secession at the beginning of the XX century.
The artist is concerned about eternal matters. Sometimes he tries to find answers using simple, understanding means of artistic expression, some other times he uses complicated aesthetic and allegoric means of art. The compositions of the author’s works frequently hold signs of clear semantic meaning. The artist strives to unite the form and its symbolic meaning, he gives preference to the emotion – a universal intuition, linking us with universe and the sourse of beauty.
