Did you know?

This artist combines the ideas of the infinite and the finite in this work.


After decades of working primarily in a figurative mode, Skuodas turned to pure abstraction only recently. Her art often addresses connections between the spiritual and physical realms; in her words, "I believe our psyches are linked to the laws which manifest themselves in the formation of a flower, a snowflake, or a seashell."Befitting its title, the painting's composition is structured, yet openended along its perimeter.
