    Forms of silence and emptiness The theme for the exhibition of regional art was chosen not by chance, considering the fact that it is organized by an art Centre named after Mark Rothko. Silence and emptiness are two key concepts that were extremely important and relevant to Rothko’s work, especially to his classic works. Speaking of his artistic method, the master compared it with “creative emptiness”, appealing to the philosophy of Buddhism, in which emptiness has infinite potential: everything in this world happens or “materializes” from “nowhere” and everything goes “nowhere”.

    SANRI COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY Friends warned me: watch out, you can open the door you would not want to open. I agree, there are different keys, billions of doors, basically the result is predictable, but there are also doors that are of concern, and if you do not open them, you will never find out what is hidden behind. Yes, maybe you’d be very disappointed, even angry and would hate yourself and others. Would you be a loser? Maybe you would grow stronger in future, as you would be able to recognize those doors and learn how to open or close them whenever it suits you. Yes, mostly you would be very disappointed, because nothing would be hidden behind the door, and still there will doors that will open the Universe for you, which you would never be able to see, if you did not open the door. Our society is run by fear. Of course, some people benefit from it. Do you want to be of advantage for anybody? Read more...

    Richard Denny THE ERA OF SILENCE
    The Era of Silence by Richard Denny Be it for geographical, political or moral reasons, there are times when we, and society fall silent.

    LINDA ZĪVERE  IN THE SILENCE “Let silence take you to the core of life.”                                                                         /Rumi/ “In my way, I have been very lucky to meet wonderful beings, teachers, books, events that have contributed to my search for TRUTH. This path of searches has been and still is highly intense and beautiful. Since I am unable to verbalize it in order to share, I use my strongest and, at the same time, more nuanced medium of expression – painting” – said Linda Zīvere. Read more...

    Erin Lawlor ’s paintings are composed of large brushstrokes that undulate in striated waves across the surfaces of her paintings. The strokes move fluidly; the forms are as natural as a waterfall or waves that move with the tide. Lawlor’s strokes have substance and presence created by the saturation of colour and density. Large brushstrokes steeped in paint are laid by the artist on a wet ground. The paintings are constructed with wet strokes; she paints wet into wet. Her brushstrokes mix with the painted ground on the canvas, giving an articulated movement to each stroke. Read more...

    Ingūna Levša  On the Other Side
    The exhibition “ On The Other Side ” spotlights images, environments and themes that the artist finds important as her personality-makers, for example, a forest, tangles of tree branches, which have been used several times in different contexts, are symmetrically arranged as a totem pole, as well as silhouettes of the artist herself and her husband that have been placed amid natural elements such as mushrooms, sea and water blooms. Ingūna Levša works in Jacquard technique, weaving digital tapestries, allowing her to create complex compositions referencing on and include more of the surrounding reality into them. The artist works mainly with photographs, integrating various recurring elements in them. Some of the elements are arranged in kaleidoscopic compositions. Thus, private mythology and subjectivism interacts with generalized images and metaphors. With her canvases Ingūna Levša presents a new approach which is relatively rare in Latvian textile art. It is largely based on application of realistic forms and solidity of storyline. The artist offers a new perspective on potentials of textile, advantages of modern technologies combined with the ability to create deeply personal messages. Since 2001, the artist actively participates in exhibitions. She has taken part in eight solo exhibitions and about 30 group exhibitions both in Latvia and abroad. Her works displayed at the exhibition were created in Guimarães (Portugal) and Bergen (Norway). Read more...

    Ieva Nagliņa Discarded
    Refusing of, or as they say, casting away the excess, we get something more valuable and realize that we can move along in a better quality. On the other hand, the “ discarded ” – are people we consciously or unconsciously turn away from, throw them out of society, or consider them unfit to anything. Do we get anything from that?   Read more...
