BUBBLY by Deimante Dociute
Size: 594mm x 1260mm
'Bubbly’ is a sculptural piece made of balloons and captured in a photographic triptych. The human-like figure with colourful, bubbly outside and contrary body language reflects the opposition between how people may appear and how differently they might feel, especially in current times.
Deimante Dociute is a Lithuanian visual artist, currently based in the United Kingdom. She explores themes of body image, male gaze and female identity in the society through a playful standpoint and usage of a variety of materials, different mediums, mostly concentrating on a sculptural result. Distorted figurative forms add multiple meanings to her work at the same time leaving some space for viewer's imagination. Therefore, the main focal point is not a solution to issues behind the thematic of her work, but rather the broader picture of various possible perspectives. Layers of different viewpoints as well as acceptance of the new ones create a pattern of complexity in which more accuracy can be found and better communication through art can be accomplished.
