How many exhibition works:
SLA Art Space presents DWELL, a solo exhibition of New York-based Lithuanian artist, Laima Sprangauskaite. Featuring a selection of oil paintings created throughout the artist’s career, the exhibition will create a contemplative space, inviting the viewer to revel in the deep serenity that radiates from Sprangauskaite’s works. The exhibition will be on view July 8-30, 2022.
The artist’s quiet yet exuberant images are meant for contemplation and focus. In her work, Sprangauskaite explores space and aims to express subtle movements between the depth and the surface. She compares the process to walking the labyrinth, journeying toward the center in peace and silence.
“Everything we perceive as solid in the physical world is actually flickering in and out of an infinite void at the speed of light,” says Sprangauskaite. “Like mandalas that are primarily used as a form of meditation to gain knowledge from within and allow the busy mind to take a break.”
Sprangauskaite’s artistic expression is drawn from the oldest traditions of mystical intuition, the unity of void/plenum and self, and their pulsing interconnectedness. Her art attempts to display this intrinsic unity and harmony that is revealed every day, everywhere.
Gallery hours: Saturday 12 – 4 or by appointment.
Laima Sprangauskaite graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania with an MFA in painting.
