Russian artist Alisa Lariushkina molds countless coiled ribbons and small twists from air-dry clay to create idyllic scenes brimming with color and texture.
Based in Vilnius, Lithuania, Lariushkina erases the line between painting and sculpture with her mesmerizing polymer clay art.
Instead of paints, this Lithuania-based artist uses these versatile modelling medium to draw the images on a flat canvas.
Thus, she creates tactile paintings that you can both see and feel.
She renders scenic landscapes by sculpting pieces of clay into expressive, swirling shapes that resemble lines.
The individual pieces of clay that make up each artwork are by formed by hand and glued together.
Describing her work, Lariushkina says, “I make figures and framed landscapes of clay. I developed my own style in 2015, using various materials for sculpting: air-dry clay, paper clay, acrylic paints, crystals, and beads.”
“…I can tell you that I came to [clay sculpting] quite spontaneously…Since then, I improved the technology, found the best materials, and made my products more durable and of better quality.”
