Gabriele Sermuksnyte

Gabriele Sermuksnyte is a painter of the young generation. A graduate of the Vilnius Academy of Arts, she has held several solo exhibitions in Lithuania and participated in-group exhibitions in Lithuania and the Netherlands. In Sermuksnyte’s large-size canvases, dramatic Baroque-style colours and contemporary mythology of popular culture are combined.
The artist depicts the world of present-day princesses and their pastimes with the help of references to widely known fairy tales. The main characters of Sermuksnyte’s compositions are women and girls whose faces are either not depicted at all, or hidden under masks, and any vestiges of emotion or character are eliminated. These passive decorative bodies are meant for wearing jewellery, designer clothes, and for filling the pages of fashion magazines. While representing the bodies as objects, the artist draws attention to the feminine-related gender stereotypes existing in society.
