Kristina Ališauskaitė b. 1984

Overview

The artist uses her personal experiences as material for analyses of universal states. Although she doesn‘t use traditional archetypal imagery, an analogous result is achieved – it invokes collective unconscious. By depersonalizing, levelling, fragmenting the characters she refines a state, an experience, a psychological situation as such and turns it / them into the main characterMemory becomes a significant thematic axis  the power of fuzzy remembrances to influence the present and the future.

 

In 2009 Kristina completed MA painting studies in Vilnius Academy of Arts. After the studies she was awarded a „Young artist‘s“ public prize in the contest of the Baltic states (2013). In 2014 she was granted an individual scholarship of the Ministry of Culture. Since 2015 she has been a member of Lithuanian Artists‘ Association.
