Simona PETRAUSKAITE - GERMANY

born in Lithuania, now lives and works in Munich - Germany.

Artist's statement : "Inspired by sun reflections on the summer fields, I tried to transfer it to my pictures. The light is strongly reflected by the partially milled/engraved metal surfaces and so when the viewing angle changes, the light puts the image in permanent alteration. I love to work with metal, especially with copper because of its warm color and like to experiment how it works with different acids where the result is mostly surprisingly different.

Another technique of my artworks is staple art, where the thousends of gold-plated staples are stapled on wood plate with canvas."

Technique: mixed media: Metal-patinas (acids) on copper-plate, engraving, the copper-plate is glued on wooden plate.
