L. C. – What is art for you?

A. J. – In the last years I have been focusing on research and deepening. My sight to the whole world is expressed through the colors. Transparency and light, always ubiquitous. I think this is reflection of the visible world, but is also about escaping the mystery of our existence which is usually invisible for human’s eyes. It feels like the bottom of our soul. Real objects in my paintings are messengers of life, the footprints of our dreams and ourselves, witnesses of our time on this Earth, as Scriptures hint their story.

interview Aiste Jurgilaite Aiste Jurgilaite, Flair

My research focuses on the artistic brilliance of colors, lights and calligraphy. Relatively abstract phenomenon and universal form inspires me to capture on few main things. I am looking for depth and transparency in my paintings. Magical Scriptures immerse myself in the desire of bringing up the message that symbolizes our existence and our creativity. I’m writing anything specific: Observer can look at the table in the way he likes, what he see, so I am trying to unleash his imagination.
