Hiatus exhibition is an invitation to visual journey. Through contact with paintings (in the broadest possible sense of the word) perception itself can be changed, it can reevaluate seeing. On the way to art, one crosses many paths: thoughts, sensations, feelings, sensory stimuli. The visual component resonates strongly with memory. At times, observing a painting can help one reconnect; go back to one's roots and affirm their identity. Art can also be means of communication with the rest of the world. It allows one to "speak" about things difficult to name, or things lacking name entirely. It helps to order reality, notice patterns of raw images, beyond words.
