About Birute Nomeda Stankuniene
Since starting to fulfill my dreams ten years ago, I have opened my personal gallery and my work has been showcased in national and international exhibitions for over 25 times. The book has been published based solely on my paintings group. My art has been featured on IUOMA publications, online blogs and has been selected on a weekly collection of Saatchi Art Online gallery. I’m also a member of IUOMA ( International Union Of Mail Artist), and Slow Art Day movement. APPROACH: Creating has always been my permanent need. For me to create, that is to paint, means to think, communicate, solve and discover. Painting allows me to meditate upon the nature of being a human and the relationship between me as individual and the others. To create is to be in conversation with other people and to be in a journey of finding the answers by yourself; it is an effort to describe and mediate the day-to-day experience. TECHNIQUE: At the moment, I work using traditional methods. I paint with oil, acrylic paint on canvas and cardboard. I almost always select intensive, pure colors. While working, I rarely sketch, and rather create here and in the given moment.
