How to understand Sigita Daugule's work? At the cradle of her style (emerged in late 90s) there are significant memories of the expansion of modern art with its uprising against classical culture and against man as a whole mayor. The criteria of modernism are abstract concepts, abstract emotions, and the order set by chaos. Sigita Daugule's painting has closely merged with these criteria, but not only with them. It also merges with the dynamics of postmodernism – with those fragments of classics, larger or smaller, which floating slowly through the cultural space and spreading their energy, particularly tempting since the 70s. Postmodern situation determines the composite essence of Daugule's paintings – they contain both classical elements, such as color harmony, narrative and imaginative plots, and are modernistic, with typical too self-sufficient, too ambitious masses of colors and strokes, that create abstract dramas. Sigita Daugule paints as an agent of chaos theory, who provokes "deep" color dramas. And "deep" here must be understood literally, because it happens not like a cultural drama of color harmony that shakes taste, as it is, let’s say, in expressionism, but rather the chemical collisions of paint on canvas. Varnishes and solutions are applied on oil paints that converts them beyond recognition. It sounds and also resembles alchemy.
