More about exhibitions:
Sigita Daugule, Jānis Liepiņš. IN ONE ROOM

The story of two bright personalities in Latvian painting, who met in the same room with the exhibition format in Daugavpils. Sigita Daugule is one of the most recognizable contemporary painters in Latvia, who, with her “harsh and slightly rough” style of painting, depth and narrative has taken her place in Latvian and foreign space of art. She has held several solo exhibitions and participated in major exhibition projects in Latvia and abroad. A painter Jānis Liepiņš has been described by his contemporaries as an outstanding personality, a principled and fair person, honest in his painting. He created great pub and market scenes, depicting the daily life of peasants through tonally rich and expressive brushstrokes in landscapes and still life compositions.


 Exhibitions core – a conversation about the current design time ago and today, on the abilities and design education role of design in developing in the Country. The exhibition project at Rothko Center is a culmination of „Saules skola” exhibition cycle, which based on „Saules skola” diploma archive.

Ieva Nagliņa DISCARDED

In her creative work was influenced by abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Suprematism. She work in graphic and painting, using mainly mixed techniques and media. The “discarded” combines two, on the first sight, different ideas. From one point of view they encourage avoidance any attachment to things in order free ourselves from becoming their slaves, and on the contrary – to realize our own freedom. From another point of view, it is a call to look closely at people surrounding us, not to be too quick to write them off. Both situations open a space for new discoveries and new experiences.

Patrick Peltier REBIRTH

Patrick Peltier proposed solution is an interest only for the world - to feel it, to show it as that he sees it, reproduce it, spin-off all the excess, removing components that can hinder us to get to nature: to connect and contrast, mixing together the two obvious things - material and human. Patrick Peltier is an important matter and the human body, rather than confrontation. He praises the material internal secrecy and peace. Patrick Peltier gives us the opportunity to experience happiness have to manage not every artist.
