Description

As you go about your daily life, do you ever have moments of doubt? Maybe at times you feel curious and ask yourself questions like, “Is there something more to life that I cannot see or enjoy right now? Am I following my true calling? Am I really happy? Do I know it all?” As for me, I do ask these questions, because I am curious. There is a saying: curiosity killed the cat. And I say that a cat has seven lives. I am curious, and I follow that curiosity. I want to get to know myself—body, mind, emotion, imagination—and how I relate to the world, other humans, the universe, and its certainty. I want to go deep as I can in this short timeframe called life.

Eleven years ago, I started this exploration, and it has been mind-blowing, unbelievable, magical, limitless, rich, and rewarding. I have called it the “journey of becoming real.” And to be honest, there is a little truth in that saying about the cat. Since I started to walk this path, I come to some extremely intense moments, moments in which I feet like dying. 

I want to share with you what I have discovered, but I have learned that language is not always best tool for communicating. Words can be misinterpreted, and essence can be distorted by a listener or a reader according to their ideals, attitude, and frame of mind.  That’s why I have put my process of exploration, which began in 2007, also into my paintings. My on line art gallery has been organised into six chapters: Lithuanian Dream, Call of Guatemala, Nepalese Flow, Indian Disillusion, Indonesian Crystallisation, Swiss Intensity. The seventh part, Hawaii, is coming soon.
