Landingsis an original painting by Melbourne-based artist Brigita Lastauskaite.
About the artist: Brigita is a Lithuanian-born visual artist, living and working in Melbourne/ Naarm since 1998. She works from her studio in St.Kilda. Brigita completed Masters of Fine Art at the Vilnius Art Academy and studied at International Summer Academy in Salzburg. She was a finalist at Hutchins, Fisher’s Ghost, and Blacktown Art Awards.
The main theme of her paintings is abstract landscapes, inspired by her hiking and camping trips across Australia. Brigita views her paintings as gestural abstract landscapes, which are quite visceral and relate to inward feelings rather than to the intellect. Her painting process is very spontaneous, impulsive, and raw. 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 textiles and texture from her time in Lithuania is still evident in her painting practice today.
