Artist's most recent symbolic, three-dimensional paintings explore themes relating to the dualistic nature of man, that is good and evil, which is part of human nature. She also engages in a dialogue with current events and phenomena. Gravity of the works themes collides with their harmonious form. The paintings covered mainly in white paint appear to be static, colours are replaced by shadows by which the works visually gain additional dimension, the one between a painting and a sculpture. Her art defies all classifications and definitions, it is subtle and at the same time critical. In addition, she is involved in sculpture / paper installations, performance and happening art.

 

 

"Gaya Lastovjak, by creating sculptures on canvas, gives the spiritual aspects of concepts and feelings specific shapes: torso, hands, feet. She points to a certain multifacetedness of meanings through direct presentation of hidden signs and content. Thus, it opens up the possibility of interpreting and searching for the essence of things beyond the layer."
