About author

THROUGH HER ARTISTIC PRACTICE KRISTINA EXPRESSES HER PERSONAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD, HER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME, AS WELL AS THE ENCOUNTER WITH HER INNER SELF. HER WORK CAN THUS BE SEEN AS A VISUAL EXCHANGE WITH THE VIEWERS ABOUT THE FRAGILITY OF HUMAN BEING AND THE DRAMATIC ATTEMPT TO REVEAL THE BIGGEST SECRET OF HUMAN LIFE.
PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWS KRISTINA TO PASS ON THE CODED MESSAGES TO THE PUBLIC AND AT THE SAME TIME RAISE QUESTIONS, AND ENABLE THE VIEWERS TO LOOK FOR THEIR OWN ANSWERS THAT SPEAK TO THEM PERSONALLY. HER MAIN SUBJECT IS THE HUMAN BEING AS AN EXISTENCE THAT NATURALLY CONTAINS THE DEEPEST SECRETS AND "RICHES" OF LIFE. BE IT BIRTH OR DEATH, JOY OR FEAR, VANISHING OR BLOSSOMIMG BEAUTY, DESTRUCTIVE OR CREATIVE POWER – SEREIKATE IS SRONGLY ATTRACTED BY THE SERIES OF CONTRASTING NATURES THAT COEXIST IN HUMANITY. 

"The author has formed a unique artistic style which reflects romantic personification of modern society. Her works talks about individual emotional state, which is still separated from urbanistic, civilized, demographic influences that is akin to modern times. The photographs reflect states of reminiscence, recollection, associations of their subjects. These states are conveyed through the prism of youthfulness, feminism, generation change or historical personal experience. In this cosmopolitic globalization context the works of Kristina Sereikaite attracts with emotional subjectivism which is cohesive with modern European globalistic identity. The art of photography by Kristina Sereikaite is marked by stilistic maturity and cosistency. It shows sound artistic logic and purposeful visual mind. The fact that the artist has studied and worked as a film shooter also added some cinematographic quality to her photograph series. It has some dream space filled feeling that is often found in films. The author has formed a unique artistic style which reflects romantic personification of modern society.

Critics by Egle Jaskuniene 

“The author's narrative photo layout in itself creates the secret of intuition, allowing the viewer to find the answer without closing the trap of fantasy. Looking at the K. Sereikaite’s photographs you can imagine an entire audio track, a variable amount of dead silence to the restless murmur of wind curtains and terrible screaming.”
