In this series of new works, Stancikaitė explores recurring themes pertinent to longing, desire, connection, intimacy, and vulnerability. Focusing on the contrast of absolute closeness and complete disconnection, she composes her paintings in a way that creates an unfinished narrative leaving it up to the viewer’s imagination. After taking a closer look, one may find it slightly unsettling and uneasy. Featured in this show, the Echo series underlines human emotion with the magnified paintings of mouths in ambiguous acts of screaming, laughing or smiling.
Inspired by photography and fine art, Stancikaitė also turns to contemporary design, cinema, architecture and human anatomy. From something as simple as observing situations of everyday life to being influenced by the works of other creatives, it shifts her perspective of the world and assists in the development of her practice.
