Lithuanian artist invites Londoners to challenge themselves through art.

About

With a collection of bold abstract works and over thirty exhibitions under her belt, artist Birute Nomeda Stankuniene, is coming to London this November. The artist is an advocate of exposing art to the general public, and often favours non-traditional exhibition spaces. Having previously exhibited in NHS facilities and Sherborne Abbey, her third UK solo exhibition ‘Crazy Yellow’ will take place at the gallery space in the Westminster Reference Library.

 

The upcoming exhibition works explore the themes of anxiety and endurance, and the backbone of the exhibition is the paintings group titled, ‘Crazy Yellow’ (14 works in total). It was created over 3 years, and is a strong example of the artist’s style: sharp, dramatic atmosphere and multiple artworks forming large painting groups which increase the thematic depth and experience. In her abstract works, Birute often seems to walk on the edge of a psychological abyss, trying to keep the balance between pain and irony, sometimes creating a dimension of the absurd. The artist tells us: ”These works are about the unseen, intangible but foreboding feeling. They also hold the energy of determination to move forward, even if that courage seems like madness at the time.” The works are dominated by yellow and black: this colour combination according to Lüscher colour test connotes a state of extreme desperation when looking for escape and a risk of unpremeditated actions when seeking a change. Birute’s paintings focus on expressing and communicating psychological states, while the abstract form frees the viewers to enter a state of contemplation and to encounter the work as a direct experience. Ultimately, finding their own unique instinctual reactions and emotions to the artworks.
