    Surrealist Paintings by Rasa Valiene Now on View in Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery

    Now on view at the Patchogue-Medford Library is the solo exhibits Paintings by Rasa Valiene. Here, Rasa displays a series of large-scale, oil on canvas, abstract and surrealist paintings that invoke an ethereal occurrence. She is fascinated by the infinite intricacy and complexity of the universe as well as nature and human consciousness.

    About the Artwork

    Rasa’s artwork transforms the exhibition space to an otherworldly experience in which the viewer can negotiate the relationships between line, form, shape, and color. One work on display, Birth of Amber, invokes feelings of either observing the cosmos or a single-celled organism under a microscope. Rich blues fill the composition, which allows the foreground imagery to pop off the canvas. The yellow-orange circles appear to be peacefully floating in the abyss. The viewer loses his or herself in the expansive scene that warrants quiet contemplation.
