FAMILY HISTORY

Landscapes change over the centuries, bearing silent witness to the upheavals history imposes on their inhabitants. Aerial views have been a strong source of inspiration for me, and I have used maps and photographs from my family’s village, Zelodok in Lithuania, witness to mass murder during the last war, to make paintings in tribute to a lost community.

 

I hope that any landsleit from the Zelodok area will contact me if they have visual material which they would like to suggest for inclusion in future paintings, and I would welcome feedback from artists in Lithuania.
