I was graduating from Vilnius Academy of art, metal art. I have practiced with different artists and explored different materials in Lithuania, participated in exhibitions and contest in Europe. This year my work was selected for the Talente 2019. Step by step I am trying to get into the contemporary jewelry world.
StatementI outline the feeling and the present time. There is no past, no future. In my art, I do not generalize the plan, I trust the moment and when it comes as a surprise, then the expression merges with forms, textures and colours into one. In my art, there is no place for expectations - fantasy covers all. There is no plan, here lives only the inner pulses that give different meanings and that could be understood only after putting the great work into the creation, in the end, I hold a piece of art in my hand.
My aim is to show it is not all about material value, there is much more. Recycled materials can be fashionable and wearable just like precious materials: gold, platinum and etc. My first inspiration was from trash piles next to the highway when I was travelling. Recycled material made pieces are in a perfect art form. It makes people think of recycling and beauty at the same time, understand the meaning and value of jewel.
