Rosanda Sorakaitė has been noticed in the field of painting in her early years of studies. She has strikingly joined the ranks of the most appreciated young Lithuanian artists: she held seven solo exhibitions, participated in tens of curated exhibitions and art fairs, earned various awards, including the international Young Painter‘s Prize (2016).
R. Sorakaitė is interested in everyday aesthetics in her paintings, directing her sight to emphatically simple, typical objects of the mundane. Minimalistic, fragmented way of portraying, haziness and dusk in R. Sorakaitė‘s paintings allow to speak about the briefness of the past and memory. The existence in the artist‘s works is revealed as if through insignificant and random moments, which have the ability to move the viewer to a metaphysical space, requiring experience of emotional intelligence.
According to the author, the works come from the observation of the closest environment, thinking about the past: „Sometimes a motive comes randomly, sometimes I watch it for a while, but in both cases there is some kind of a short flash, that allows me to understand, that this moment is in alignment with an inner thought, maybe still intangible, just anticipated. The process of painting itself immerses you to a no longer existent time, and you are alone, just by yourself. Painting is like talking to someone really close to you, when you are frank and true.“
