While Lui Shtini’s works are shrouded in a layer of mystery, they evoke deep emotions through the variety of forms Shtini conjures. Some act as portraits without being overtly so and others engage in a more abstracted formal language with hints of biology and organic forms. His painting technique engages his surfaces through layers of underpainting and brushstrokes while his drawings extend how one might look at charcoal and graphite. For Shtini’s first solo institutional exhibition in the United States, Bemis Center will present a range of paintings and drawings encompassing the artist’s unique style dating from 2013–2018.
