Utilising excellent schematization and linear acuity Gaitis places the forms within the realm of dreams without yet depriving it of a unique, solid, and above all evocative composition. The alternating shades of warm ochre, bright blue and warm terracotta tiles on the roofs create a dynamic interplay in the landscape. His designing skill manipulates and transforms the natural surroundings arousing our interest in a growing unique manner. The anti-realistic layout of the architecture as well as their surrounding space and the meticulous composition in which the form receives a solid rendering reveal the artist’s playful disposition as well as his sharp artistic understanding of mass and volume.
