Laima Politis

Generally my works are rendered in the genre of “naïve” art which often have deliberate underlying components of quirkiness and wit. The choice of the subject matter in my paintings focuses mainly on social and interpersonal themes.

Many viewers can relate to the emotion that arises from the narrative of my work. The characters are derived from my observations of people in everyday life and their surroundings – they are symbols of my subjectivity, portrayed as players in a drama.

The paintings are fundamentally optimistic, however, upon closer consideration, the viewers are able to appreciate the underlying complexity with which they can empathise.
