"SHAPING NATURE"

"SHAPING NATURE" - it's a seventeen digital artworks set created by artist Karolina Jarmalyte. The collection is inspired by animals, plants, fungus (mushrooms), minerals and bacteria kingdoms, and also natural elements. These fantastic worlds and connections that we sapiens and the nature kingdom have are remarkable. During two months of quarantine, I was surrounded by forests, lakes, birds, and wild animals. I rediscovered this special connection in a new fantastic way and expressed all my thoughts, feelings, and visions through lines, colors, and shapes in my artworks. Paintings also illustrate five elements in Chinese philosophy  - Wuxing. It's five types of chi dominating at different times: wood (木 mù), fire (火 huǒ), earth (土 tǔ), metal (金 jīn) and water (水 shuǐ). The doctrine of the five elements has two aspects. The cycle of rising (生 shēng) describes how the elements arise from each other: fire comes from a tree, fire from the earth, metal from the earth, water from metal, and a tree from water. And the cycle of destruction (克 kè) is defined as the elements destroying each other: the tree overcomes the earth, the earth overcomes water, water overcomes fire, fire overcomes metal, metal overcomes wood. I found all those things exciting, so I am inviting You to watch my virtual exhibition below and dive into nature shapes, lines, and soundless color melodies.

"Mountains"

Mountains are formed through tectonic forces or volcanism. These forces can locally raise the surface of the earth. Mountains erode slowly through the action of rivers, weather conditions, and glaciers. A few mountains are isolated summits, but most occur in huge mountain ranges. Maybe this artwork will inspire You to plan an unforgettable trip to the Alps and rediscover the constellations. Maybe it will be an impetus for a pilgrimage, or maybe just from time to time, it will remind our true home -  NATURE.

"Fungi"

A fungus is any member of the group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds, as well as the more familiar mushrooms. These organisms are classified as a kingdom, which is separate from the other eukaryotic life kingdoms of plants and animals. Maybe this artwork will inspire You to think about that special connection how we sapiens and nature are linked to each other. Maybe bring some new perspectives about more natural medicine options returning to nature.

"Rock"

A rock is any naturally occurring solid mass or aggregate of minerals or mineraloid matter. It is categorized by the minerals included its chemical composition and the way in which it is formed. Rocks are usually grouped into three main groups: igneous rocks, metamorphic rocks, and sedimentary rocks. The use of stone has had a significant impact on the cultural and technological development of the human race. Rocks have been used by humans and other hominids for at least 2.5 million years. Lithic technology marks some of the oldest and continuously used technologies.

"Water"

Water is the most yin in the character of the five elements. Its motion is downward and inward, and its energy is stillness and conserving. Water is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth's hydrosphere and the fluids of most living organisms. Black, blue, and grey colors represent the water. Shapes snd strokes represents rivers, oceans, rain, and glaciers. In Chinese Taoist thought, water is representative of intelligence and wisdom, flexibility, softness, and pliancy

"Fytá"

"Fytá" Greek word meaning – plants. Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae. Humans and plants have a complex relationship extending far back into our joint evolutionary history. Plants provide nutrition, fiber, pharmaceuticals, and energy for people and animals across the globe. Our deep relationship with, and understanding of, plants has enabled us to harness their nutritional, medicinal, and aesthetic benefits.

"Clay"

Clay is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material. Clays are plastic due to particle size and geometry as well as water content and become hard, brittle, and non–plastic upon drying or firing. Both humans and birds build houses from it. We make art and tableware form it giving meaning to our traditions and handwork.

"Spring"

Spring is the season when nature bursts back into life in an explosion of sight, sound, and color. What better invitation to get out and explore? It’s the time of year when everything in nature is changing and promising new life and new hope. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.

"Tropics"

The tropics are the region of the Earth surrounding the Equator. A general sense for a tropical climate to mean warm to hot and moist year-round, often with the sense of lush vegetation. The word "tropic" comes from Ancient Greek τροπή (tropē), meaning "to turn" or "change direction", as the Sun appears to cease its southerly course when it reaches this latitude and begins moving back to the north.

"Sea"

Winds blowing over the surface of the sea produce waves, which break when they enter the shallow water. Winds also create surface currents through friction, setting up slow but stable circulations of water throughout the oceans. A wide variety of organisms, including bacteria, protists, algae, plants, fungi, and animals, live in the sea. The sea provides substantial supplies of food for humans.

"Summertime"

Nature in summer is exciting and filled with many things to learn. Summer is bursting at the seams with life and activity. Nature in summer is filled with activity, but even the birds rest in the shade at mid-dayIt's a season of birds songs, colors, sunshine, warm sand and water, cubs, and fruits. It's blooming.

"Savannah"

Tropical and subtropical savannas are classified with tropical and subtropical grasslands and shrublands as the tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome. Savanna is grassland with scattered trees. Shrubland is dominated by woody or herbaceous shrubs. Large mammals that have evolved to take advantage of the ample forage typify the biodiversity associated with these habitats. These large mammal faunas are richest in African savannas and grasslands

"Jungle"

The word jungle originates from the Sanskrit word Jangla (Sanskrit: जङ्गल), meaning dry, dry ground, desert. The jungle is an area of forest that combines warmer temperatures and dense vegetation. Jungles may incorporate numerous vegetation and land types in different climatic zones, also a various range of wildlife species. Forests and jungles touch our lives every day. They have done for millions of years since the world’s first peoples used them to get shelter, food, water, and firewood.

"Wind"

On the surface of the Earth, wind consists of the bulk movement of air. In human civilization, the concept of wind has been explored in mythology, influenced the events of history, expanded the range of transport and warfare, and provided a power source for mechanical work, electricity, and recreation. Winds can shape landforms, via a variety of aeolian processes such as the formation of fertile soils, such as loess, and by erosion. Winds can disperse seeds from various plants, enabling the survival and dispersal of those plant species, as well as flying insect populations

"Crystals"

The word crystal derives from the Ancient Greek word κρύσταλλος (krustallos), meaning both "ice" and "rock crystal", from κρύος (kruos), "icy cold, frost". A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules, or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions. Crystals are beautiful and often used in pseudoscientific practices such as crystal therapy

"GROUND"

Soil - the upper layer of the Earth's crust, formed in surface rocks (sediments), exposed to water, air, organisms. Soil consists of mineral, organic, and organic-mineral substances. The source of minerals is native rock. Organic matter in the soil is of plant and animal origin. Due to the interaction of mineral and organic, complex organic-mineral compounds are formed. Soil or soil is a mixture of organic matter, minerals, gases, liquids, and organisms, sustaining life. Earth's body of soil, called the pedosphere, has four important functions: as a medium for plant growth, as a means of water storage, supply, and purification, as a modifier of Earth's atmosphere, as a habitat for organisms. The work depicts the delicate world of soil in its shapes, lines, and color palette.

"Flame"

A flame is a mixture of reacting gases and solids emitting visible, infrared, and sometimes ultraviolet light, the frequency spectrum of which depends on the chemical composition of the burning material and intermediate reaction products. In many cases, such as the burning of organic matter, for example, wood, or the incomplete combustion of gas, incandescent solid particles called soot produce the familiar red-orange glow of "fire." This light has a continuous spectrum. The ability to control fire was a dramatic change in the habits of early humans. Making fire to generate heat and light made it possible for people to cook food, simultaneously increasing the variety and availability of nutrients and reducing disease by killing organisms in the food.

"Sun"

The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. In English, the Greek and Latin words occur in poetry as personifications of the Sun, Helios /ˈhiːliəs/ and Sol /ˈsɒl/, while in science fiction "Sol" may be used as a name for our sun to distinguish it from others. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, with an internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field via a dynamo process. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth.
