INFINITY MIRRORS BY SIMONA PETRAUSKAITE
In her own technique Simona Petrauskaite creates Light Objects combining geometric structures of line, light and color with material like mirror, glass, plexiglass, LEDs and other. One could think she creates an illusion of infinity. But in fact she wants to show: THE BORDERS ARE AN ILLUSION...
"Simona‘s creations are the most important documents of her identity and the evidences of the nature searching.
The confessions of her creations, manifestations of non-conformist state and the natural development of multifaceted search, balancing between two-dimensional and three-dimensional space, interests and needs, which constantly bond each other, but result in the different opening roads.
Real creational instincts are satisfied while following them, they are embodied with undistorted nature, sensible view, metaphors, precise psychological painting, precise architectonic of the creations, incarnation of mind and imagination.
She does not hide the individual experience in her creation, but willingly complements her works with philosophic, phonetic content. Often distances from what is happening (here and now), imagination projects to past and future, to micro and macro space and metaphysical existence limits.
Leans to cosmic mythology by the light, to tendencies, which would offer abstractedly the symbolic sound to the creative language.
She chooses openly symbols, which open the opposing earth and heaven spheres.
Composite supports often disappear, repetitions of the lines and reflections give a complex continuity, become autonomous, rhythmical structures, constantly change the accents and the movement directions of the forms.
Stitches of the lines, overlapping patterns provide uncontrollable sensation of play and spontaneous infinity."
