BEAUTIFOOLISH: Justina Gervyte

February 2014 at The Bridge presents an exhibition of collage/print/drawing by Justina Gervyte, an artist and illustrator from Vilnius, Lithuania. Having cultivated advanced skills in drawing and painting at the National M. K. Ciurlionis School of Arts, in 2010 she arrived in the UK to study illustration at Norwich University of the Arts. This allowed her not only to explore new techniques and media but also provided her with the confidence to develop a visual language, connecting experimentation with experience. Since graduating from the course she has continued to search for new ways of seeking inspiration and self reflection. Full of dynamic patterns, vivid colours and contrast between chosen media, Justina’s images often celebrate duality; a dialogue between herself and the audience and the symbolic meaning of literally everything in a piece.
