Lid sinds: 2016
Woonplaats: Utrecht
Opleiding:

Sinds mijn afstuderen aan de Hogeschool voor de Kunsten te Utrecht in 2007 creëer ik sculpturen gemaakt van gerecycled papier op basis van plastische mallen van rivierklei. De vormen verwijzen naar omhulsel, vulva, schoot, poort, yoni, cocon… Deze impliciet, metaforische beelden tonen waar wij vandaan komen, naar (terug)verlangen en ons geborgen voelen.

VEHICLES, COCOONS and PODS
The main vehicle in my current work is paper, it’s texture, composition and nature, and of course it’s handling and processing. Paper pulp is willing, gratefully modeled and edited as a wet lump of clay. During my sculptural research, I noticed that the nature and feel of this medium evoked powerful, stimulating memories and associations of my agrarian upbringing in Lithuania. Guided by scales, pods, cocoons, nut- and avocado shells I seek tangible sculptural transformations. These cases protect their content when they themselves are vulnerable. They evoke in me a sense of transience and temporary security.
For my sculptures I use newspaper pulp, Japanese paper, teabags paper, color pigments, oils and binding medium in order to change and stabilize my material. Protective casings are a fundamental necessity for all new life. They are nurseries, sanctuaries for growth and security. Simultaneously they are also needed for deceased remains as in a sarcophagus. My casings are vehicles in the relentless process of growth and decay. In my experience and in my sculptures all these scales, pods, shells and cocoons are a metaphor for the deep-seated, universal desire to be embraced, cherished, wrapped, nurtured and cuddled. 

SIMPLICITY
I am in search of simplicity, which takes its inspiration from Zen and everyday minimalism and cultured naturalness. However, simplicity of form is not necessarily simplicity of experience and content.
My paper sculptures are imperfect, impermanent, incomplete, modest and humble. Intentionally my works have the material qualities of Wabi-Sabi (the quintessential Japanese aesthetic), like the suggestion of natural process, irregular, intimate, earthy and simple. 
My sculptures, like things Wabi-Sabi, exhibit the effects of accident or shows the result of just letting things happen by chance. They are small and compact, quiet and inward-oriented. My sculptures beckon: get close, relate. They inspire a reduction of the psychic distance between one work and another work; between people and things.
My sculptures are tranquil and calming, enveloping and womb-like. They are a world apart: nowhere, anywhere, everywhere. 

LIGHTNESS
I’ve been working with river clay to make shapes. I need them to create my paper sculptures. I am investigating the lightness of things, the lightness in a literal and figurative sense.

BORDERS & PERSPECTIVES
What is it, that is more and different from what it appears to be? What is there more and different beyond the surface? Is it an artefact, an idea, a statement, a representation, an image, a longing? Or is it a catalyst, an incentive, an inspiration, a vehicle which moves me to the next frontier, imagination? The limits of the paper sculptures I make are the limits of my world. How do I forge the link with the outside world? That’s another barrier/border, the one between my own world and the world outside/the perspectives.
