"Musing on the Edge", an exhibition of TADAS ZAICIKAS's colourful and textured paintings, fills the front area of our gallery through Sunday May 13, 2018. This visually striking show is comprised of 32 intriguing abstracts in oil, acrylic and mixed media.
Working mainly in oils and encaustics, Zaicikas creates thickly layered canvases with bursts of colour, continuously building up and tearing down, adding and subtracting layer upon layer, until imagination and reality come together to express the emotional essence of each work. While most of his work focuses on the abstract, he also enjoys impressionism and mixed media works.
Born and educated in Lithuania, Zaicikas currently lives and works between Canada and the French territorial islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
