About the author
"I'll start by saying that I'm a rather superficial person in that sense,
that I don't interfere in the twists and turns of art's past, present directions and visions of the future.
My aim in making art is a simple, uncomplicated aesthetic.
I was born in Kaunas. My childhood was spent in Žaliakalnis. Later studies
Vilnius Art Institute (now Academy) and after graduation
appointment to Klaipėda. A beautiful, painfully pleasant past.
Now it will soon be thirty years that I have been working with furniture in New York. I have a long-standing understanding of the professional routine, the functionality and visual expression of interiors.
And to go back to the beginning, I want to add that the human living environment
is divided into what is interesting, beautiful and attractive to them, and what is alien (in this case
I am not talking in the social sense). My wish is that a person who hangs a picture should feel good without noticing it, without drawing attention to it.
That would be the point," the artist introduces himself.
Gediminas Sprindys works in watercolour and makes excellent use of its ability to layer colours, colour transparency, translucency and spills. His work is dominated by urban landscapes, images of Kaunas modernism and New York skyscrapers. The soft watercolour is an unexpected contrast to the depicted glass and concrete, giving lightness and gently reminding us of temporality.
