BIO

Even though humans are classified for the purposes of biological study as animals, there is a distinct separation between the understanding of ‘animal’ and ‘human’. With her work, Indre Rimselyte is exploring why and how the idea of being part of nature and other living creatures has drifted away from humankind. In particular, the artist is interested in similarities and communication between different species. Using oil paint she creates figurative paintings of different realities and fantasy worlds. The work goes through stages, which include photographs, drawings, collages and paintings. While showing the supernatural, vibrant worlds where her ideas come to life the artist talks about real issues of the human-animal psychology. Rimselyte believes that the way we communicate with living creatures surrounding us is to do with our childhood and it is one of her main subjects of exploration.
