Ella Mežule



"Ir" - "There is a"
Öl auf Leinwand 100 x 100 cm

Ella Mežule schreibt dazu:

These works are made in this summer and are part of exhibition called “Tuning fork”, that was displayed in Kanepes Kulturas centrs in september. There is so much information everywhere, that You cannot escape it even in Your mind. Try to be without thoughts for 10 minutes, while Your mind is full of necessary and trashy ideas and knowledge. I tried to put it all aside and find out, what is the fundament, on what is based all these, temporal experiences. Tuning fork is a tuning tool, used in music usually. Sound is based on vibration. I think painting is my way how to tune my perception closer to composure, makes me able to distinguish the important from the excess. Also changes internal conditions in every day's life. And Then the paintings also becomes a Tuning forks to viewers.
„Ir”- "There is a"- Encapsulated visually nothing especially saying story, but makes you think about something. Right?

Dārta Stafecka



"Laiks" - "Time"
Etching (Radierung) aquatint 645 x 936 cm, 2015

Dārta Stafecka schreibt dazu:

There is difference between time length illusion and physical time, as the linear arrangement of time does not reflect of how we remember — in memories events are not in a sequence, they overlap and are shifted, merge into one. This is one of works from 4 work series, each work is one week, each of which includes seven days and this all adds up to one month, the sequential time vision unit. One moment of each day is fixed, every moment is different and similar at the same time, memories overlap and they can no longer be distinguished between the days of the week. One element characteristics can be mistakenly credited to another element, as a result creating a mess. Things that are outside the norm that is out of this mess, we can distinguish and remember correctly. I tried to portray this feeling by putting one drawing on top of another to form a dense overlap of drawings, in which it is possible to trace some element or to see some shape.

Marta Veinberga



"Blaugznas" - "Dandruff", 2016
Bonus stickers, adhesive film, tape on plywood, 152 x 304 cm

Marta Veinberga schreibt dazu:

A bonus sticker is the conceptual, as well as technical starting point of the "Dandruff". Usually, stickers of this sort are issued by a variety of sales outlets (such as supermarkets, filling stations, etc.) and a set of them (about 10 to 40 pieces, attached to a collector's card) gives one an opportunity to buy specific items with a discount. At times, these stickers seduce us to acquire things whose necessity we wouldn't otherwise even conceive. But generally, they only roam our wallets, pockets, bags and cars until turn into a trash; or, into the new painting, if the case is more fortunate. “Dandruff”, in a humorous way, tells about excessive shopping and other human weaknesses that often take over our intentions of being rational and consequent. In “Dandruff”the blockhouse becomes a symbol of such weaknesses.
