Klikunas constructs altered three dimensional canvases and paints to modify experienced reality through visual perception. The "Blocks" series is a mix of art and architecture, hovering between minimalist painting and sculpture. It employs shizen (自然): the Japanese concept of naturalness, absence of pretense or artificiality.
He explores how to articulate the tension of materials and limits of multi-dimensionality in sculptural paintings. Material is stretched over a supporting three-dimensional framework, like a tent, and coated with paint. Klikunas lines his perforated black artworks with black gauze in order to keep a darkness behind the openings, creating a sense of depth.
The work is characterized by “mindful artlessness” and simplicity. Understated and subtle, the work doesn’t only refer to itself, and it doesn’t explain everything.
