“A simple understanding of beauty characteristic to ordinary people can also be valuable at least because it is part of life and sincere.”
And so begins a tiny glimpse into the world of Lithuanian artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė.
She embroiders beauty into the everyday discarded item… brings things back to life. Renews them. Whatever she does, it’s wonderful.
In her own words: “In my work, I take pleasure in things that are only insignificant details to most people. An ordinary human being and mundane fragments of his or her life acquire an exceptionally important meaning in my works; meanwhile, recognised icons of beauty are less important to me.
A banal understanding of beauty and utilitarian things: these are the objects that interest me and inspire creation. Therefore, I use fragments of popular culture, the so-called kitsch, in my art. When they appear in a new context, like some kind of ‘quotations,’ they help to create works that reveal my personal experience and point of view.”
