How is energy transmitted? Reverberations, responses, echoes – the vibrational criteria of effects. Sensitive chaos, formulating itself into waves, patterns and nature’s intermeshing. Parallel phenomena – body and spirit. These are the emotions and responses one experiences when viewing the artwork of Audra Skuodas. Her wall sculptures, hand- made books, drawings and writings have been created over forty years.

Audra Skuodas’ artworks have become her voice and often reflect her inner psyche. She paints the yin and the yang, the spiritual and the material, the body and the soul. Her good and evil theme is evident through out an often seemingly innocent array of subtle colors and patterns. The use of the color red found in either line or dot form, often interrupts the composition in an almost threatening or demanding way.

Audra Skuodas was born in Lithuania during the Second World War. She was nearly four years old when she fled with her parents to a displaced-persons camp in Germany. She was 10 before they left the camp and immigrated to America, settling in the Midwest. Skuodas received a bachelors and masters degree of art from Northern Illinois University.

In Skuodas earlier works she exhibited more figuratively representative pieces. The figures were encased within geometric constructs, not as a decorative effect, but as a evocatively symbolic effect. The work has for many years been defined by the value she refers to as the law of limits – that invisible phenomena of tension and attraction which maintains the cosmic order. Harmony – disharmony. Sensitization – desensitization. Excess – sustainability. The drawings, paintings, and books, have been realized under the overriding criteria of Vibrational Vulnerability – the invisible phenomena of incremental cause and effect. Audras work seeks to harness the sensorial tactility of sound embodied in vibration.

She has exhibited her work widely, frequently at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art. She has twice before been a visiting lecturer at Oberlin and is married to the painter John Pearson, Young-Hunter Professor of Studio Art. The couple has two children, Cadence and Jason.
