Berlin-based Lithuanian artist Aistė Stancikaitė’s recent work is making waves in the art world. Her slow, intricate paintings and drawings challenge the fast-paced image consumerism that has come to dominate our contemporary society. Through her meditative practice, Stancikaitė offers a deeper understanding of her subject matter and its complexities.
Her work often revolves around the themes of longing, desire, connection, intimacy, and loneliness. Stancikaitė’s red-hued figures are not everyday humans but alien characters – slightly too perfect, almost artificial, and strangely unfamiliar. Although her pieces contain naturalistic proportions and present-day elements, the carefully chosen styling and red-focused color palette create a new, slightly uncanny, eerie world that may leave viewers questioning whether they are seeing something that truly exists or purely works of fiction.
Stancikaitė’s unique approach to art is winning her fans and admirers across the globe. Her pieces offer a refreshing break from the fast-paced, mass-produced images that saturate our daily lives. If you’re looking for something fresh and thought-provoking, Stancikaitė’s work is well worth checking out
