Statement

 

Duncikaite is a visual artist,born in Lithuania,Kaunas.  Works as a sculptor and painter, also she is interested in many other spheres, such as, Land Art, Photography, Installations, Digital Art.

To Migle the stories are very important as material, Migle combines her personal experience, and the places she has seen or experience. She is very attracted to an old urban industry that one has historical value. An old ruin, bunkers, forts fascinates her, the structure, surface and also their stories.

Another major aspect of the material in Migle works are nature and philosophy. To combine the thoughts and create, usually she prefers to go out and find the most peaceful human untouched places which ones she is able to find, or read.

In her painting predominantly uses oils and monochrome colors. Migle has abandoned the vivid colors because usually she attempts to create a nostalgic, rather sad atmosphere, which combines historical parts and personal emotions. Migle is interested in ensuring that we do not forget and that we increase on understanding of current events.

In sculpting mainly she is focused in the inner beauty of the material, structure, surface and the story behind it. Which helps to understand the form and focus on it.

All the works are connected to the artist personally. Each of them has they own story to tell. For the artist it’s a reminder that everything that surrounds us are important and meaningful.
