DE TO GRAPHICS: THE NEW EXHIBITION SEASON AT THE ROTHKO CENTRE

Published: 21.02.20

ON 7 FEBRUARY, THE NEW EXHIBITION SEASON was OPENED AT DAUGAVPILS MARK ROTHKO ART CENTRE AS AN ODE TO THE GRAPHIC MEDIUM.

An ode to graphics, a celebration and a meeting of international graphic art projects at the Rothko Centre. A retrospective of Romas Viesulas (Lithuania), exhibited courtesy of the Lithuanian Art Museum, offers a tantalising glimpse into the work of this internationally renowned artist, conjuring up a special atmosphere and displaying a distinct artistic style through abstract compositions rooted in the modernist tradition.

The intricate and eloquent set of lithographs by Marina Kapilova (Belarus) and her stylistically similar bronze sculptures combine in “The Garden of Forking Paths”. Parallel graphical reflections on form and texture are traceable in the exhibition “MARK” by Latvian Jewellery Art Association and in the solo show by Romanian ceramic artist, Delia Maxim, “The Skin of Appearance”.

The work of Belgian painter, Marc Renard, is replete with bright colour and graphical linearity. Meanwhile, the international graphic art project “Person and Time” looks back into the past through the lens of personhood and temporality. A very particular graphical note is resonant in “Final Traces of the Abstract Expressionists”, a project by German artist and filmmaker, Caro Jost.

The season’s exhibitions will be on display until 12 April 2020.
