Audrius Plioplys is a neurologist and neuroscientist who also happens to be a shrewd artist…he has been involved with some of the strongest contemporary currents–abstract painting, conceptual art, temporary installations, photography–drawing upon the content of one profession to feed the other.
— Alan G. Artner, Chicago Tribune
Thoughts about thinking, which are evoked by the tension between the two extremes of expression (text and image), the interplay of their meanings, conformity and nonconformity, are the substance of the artist’s works.
— Laima Lauckaite, Art of the Diaspora (Iseivijos Daile), Vilnius, Lithuania
Plioplys asks that the viewer become an active interrogator of everything he sees….One never feels at home with an image or with a particular way of looking at it; images become concepts rather than copies of reality, deconstructions of seeing rather than documents of the world….The strength of this show lies in the way its motifs converge into a powerful depiction of displacement. The texts dislocate the photos, making their subjects conceptual, metaphoric…
— Fred Camper, Chicago Reader, Chicago, IL
One of the fathers of conceptual art, Sol Le Witt, stated that a thought, even if it has not been actualized, is as much a work of art as a completed piece…In his art works, A. Plioplys gives thought material form, and attracts the viewer to participate in an intellectual process.
— Laima Apanaviciene, Neurology Seminars, Vilnius, Lithuania

It’s different; in fact, it’s unique! . Set against stark white brick walls, the bold, bright canvases have an almost magnetic effect .
