Audrius V. Plioplys Artistic Explorations of Thought

Artist's statement

Columns of Art

In two Columns, I included images from the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. When I left medicine to pursue art, I moved to Washington, DC, where I established a studio. I studied the paintings in the National Gallery of Art, and was astounded by the magical and surrealistic images in the art of Bosch. The discovery of his work took place at the very beginning of my professional artistic career. Four decades later, I want to honor his contribution to the history of art, imagination, fantasy and dreams.

All of the Columns are free-standing, independent structures, paralleling our own human existence.

The images consist of neuronal profiles, intertwined with my own MRI brain scans, electroencephalograms, and transformations of my own art work. It is from these extensive, overlapping neuronal networks that our consciousness, being, and independence arise.

Each Column consists of three layers of polycarbonate, back-light by a LED color-changing lights. As the transmitted colors change, the images change dramatically.

The three layers of images correspond to our own three levels of awareness: consciousness, sub-consciousness and unconsciousness.

Each piece is 65 x 7 x 7 inches in size. All materials used are archival quality. The images were printed with pigmented inks. The electrical light system is UL listed and approved. These pieces were created in 2014 and 2015.
