The works of Ruta Jusionyte are bright, contrasting and full of inner tension. Ruta's works explore various human life themes. The artist thinks about a human in his certain stage of life. This exhibition aims to introduce one of the prevailing themes in Ruta's works – the intimacy between a girl and a boy, a man and a woman. Ruta analyses human desire to meet another human, their being together, and their life as a couple. Her works study human being and his relationship to himself, to other human beings and to its inner animalism. According to Ruta, animalism is closely related to people through their environment, nature itself, and is imprinted in memories from fairytale stories and paganism. Ruta's sculptural beings exhibit archaic family and animalistic metaphors. An animal receives human-like manners and characteristics, or vice versa – human receives them from the animal.

The sculpture presents a certain inner human condition, which can be seen and felt when looking at it. Through that look, through the emptiness of the eye of the sculpture, the onlooker is allowed to see inside it. In the painting human either sees himself or looks outwards. There is no unlimited field, forest, meadow, which can be felt by being in that field, forest, meadow. The spectator can only use his imagination, his memories, and knowledge in order to feel being restricted by walls in the surrounding space. He could have known, seen before, read before or could imagine things. Sculptures and paintings present Ruta's look into the others, via her artistic self showing fantasy, sensitivity, optimism and little melancholy.
