Contemporary Painting of Latvia

Catalogue

Although the nine chosen artists (Laima Bikše, Normunds Brasliņš, Andris Eglītis, Frančeska Kirke, Dace Lielā, Aleksejs Naumovs, Aija Zariņa, Vija Zariņa, Kaspars Zariņš) are so different, they are united by time and place: they were born in Latvia in the 2nd half of the 20th century and have graduated from the Painting Department of the Latvian Art Academy. This dose not say much about the artists, but they themselves are able to say a lot about Latvian painting and the time we live in, as well as about the relationship between a creative personality – an artist – and his time. And this seems to be the proper time to do it, since any anniversary is just the counting of time.
