About The Artwork

Walking in the old town of Vilnius, I often study the decoration and symbolism of the buildings. A long time ago, art nouveau and - deco bas reliefs of women on the sides of buildings attracted my attention. After collecting examples of bas-reliefs from historical buildings, I created my own interpretation of an art nouveau female portrait. The creative process was extremely complicated. I cut, ground and melted the used plastic straws collected from bars at high temperatures. I experimented a lot with the 3D printer, clay, plaster, silicone and epoxy when making the mould for the head. In the end, I settled on a plaster mould - I poured hot plastic mass into it. When the cast heads were removed from the plaster mould, some plaster stayed on them. I left the remnants on, on purpose: so that the work would not look new, and the handwork would be visible. I associate the black colour with firmness and strength, like metal. And this is the first clue to the title of my work,'Steadfastness'. In 2018 I created bas-reliefs of women from used melted straws. I have some of these moulded, plastic faces in my studio. For a while, I displayed one of the plastic faces on an indigo-blue glass circle. I worked with glass shards from used blue bottles, melted at a temperature of 1000'C, by a stained-glass master. Its uneven surface diffuses the light more beautifully and gives this sculpture an impression of mystery and spirituality. I intentionally choose the circular shape - it represents the endless, never-ending, and eternal sky. In the sculpture I created, the edge of the circle glows, creating an aura for the woman's face. The circle is attached to a welded vertical chain, which naturally does not hold like that. This is the second hint for the title of my work 'Steadfastness'. The sculpture is mounted on a dark square base that symbolises the earth. The vertical chain becomes a solid link to the symbolic circle of the sky.
