Art is many things. But perhaps more than others, art is an idea. Floating around the mind of Gediminas Pranckevicius are places where physics are optional, gravity is turned around and light mixes with shadow to create awe and inspiration. As far as lighting goes, Gediminas is perfect. At first glance I thought he had made miniature models of each environment in his studio and set up lighting rigs to capture all of the beautifully sensitive and realistic lights and shadows. But the more I’ve studied them, the more I’ve recognized the nuances of a master painter. His textures, combined with that lighting, have sent many people traveling, searching for what they’re sure exists. But in the end they come back to his work; better people for having experienced the world and better prepared to appreciate his mastery in art.
With that I encourage you all to go on a journey yourself. Whether you embark on a grand epic or just head into the woods for the afternoon, get out and experience the world. It just might happen that you stumble upon something as breathtaking and real as the work of Gediminas Pranckevicius.
