ABOUT ME

Gaya Lastovjak creates three-dimensional paintings with her own technique using paper-mache, canvas and oil paint.

The paintings reveal a sculptural vision of form, they surprise with their diversity in terms of structure and message, focusing on showing the aspect of human existence.

The characters in her paintings are static, even rigid, as if frozen in certain poses, thus showing a specific social problem, which is loneliness, limitation, pressure or anonymity. The departure from the traditional range of colors in favor of white allows for perfect accentuation of light and shade. Everything seems to be saturated with symbolic content, the author entrusts her thoughts to the artistic matter and impresses it with her own feelings.

Gaya Lastovjak's art defies all classifications and definitions, it is subtle and at the same time critical.

Figures on the paintings assume familiar and characteristic poses used for depiction of specified social problems such as loneliness, limitations, oppression and anonymity.
