Sonata Riepšaitė (b. 1993), a young generation Lithuanian painter, currently lives and works in The Hague. Though she just started her creative path, but already have a very distinct technique, which unravels in her artworks. Through a monochromatic paintings, mainly created with a charcoal, artist delves into the genre of the landscape, forming imaginary from the real, full of silence and anticipation.
An artwork "In the Shadow" inspired by two situations that were completely different in the moment of which artist saw them. One was the three house compound in a very sunny, hot summer’s day. And the other – very tall dark trees at night. Artist adapted these two situations to her willing and made a timeless, quiet landscape. There is nothing intimidating there, but the quietness, calmness and lack of detail, make it feel a bit frightening and mysterious, where almost threatening silence is floating in the air.
