Brigta La

Brigita La is a Lithuanian born contemporary abstract landscape artist, since 1998 based in Melbourne . She completed an MFA majoring in Textile at the Vilnius Art Academy in Kaunas, Lithuania, then having migrated to Australia in the late 1990s went on to study a Bachelor of Media Arts at RMIT in Melbourne. She also studied at International Summer Academy in Salzburg with Prof. Annie & Patrick Poirier (France) and Prof Tone Fink (Austria). Continually looking at new ways to further develop her visual language, explore new ways of mark making and subtly communicate through her compositions, the influence of working with textile and texture from her time in Lithuania is still evident in her painting practice today. Weaving the flotsam and jetsam of her scribbles, splashes and spontaneous application of paint Lastauskaite’s multi-layered works are akin to folkloric tapestries. Through an intuitive process of making marks and placing shapes Brigita achieves an alluring balance in her compositions even though the placement of the visual information is often asymmetrical and without a pattern. Her selection of colours and materials she plays with – most often synthetic polymer paints, oil sticks, crayon and pencils – juxtapose or interlace leading to sumptuous works that immediately engage the eye. Currently, she focuses on painting abstract gestural landscapes, drawing her inspiration from nature, especially snorkeling and underwater scenes. Since her first exhibition in1996, Brigita La has had 6 Solo Exhibitions in Melbourne, two in Europe, in Finalnd and Lithuania, and has participated in over 20 group exhibitions. + Read More
