Exhibition of works by Inta Celmina
(05.03.2018 - 30.03.2018)
In March in the gallery "Jekabs" (26/28 Jekaba Street) will be presented an exhibition of paintings by artist Inta Celmina.
"Throughout my life, working in the field of art, I came to the conclusion that the form of painting can not be expressed in words. Names or literary explanations do not disclose the idea, because it is in emotion, flowsand outbreak and it is not so easy to find. I was always interested in movement, rhythms, air vibrations and thoughts, sounds in space that overlap each other, the depth of the water and the shine of its surface. I'm connected with the words about the movements of the soul, which are reflected in the eyes and body. Reflections in the glass and memories. Dreams and reality. These are all phenomena that can express my feelings and relationships with the world, which I want to paint."
Inta Celmina works are dominated by the secret of femininity, the mood of the soul, the essence of musical interpretation and symbolic images. All this leads to a dynamic and saturated colour stroke, expressing strong emotions. An important part of the artist's work is the texture of the picture, which emphasizes the depth of space and the effect of light.
Inta Celmina received her education at the Latvian Academy of Arts and since 1969 she has been actively participating in exhibitions. The artist's works are highly appreciated in Latvia and abroad. Works are in the collection of the Art Museum Arsenal, the Union of Artists of Latvia, Swedbank, the Ministry of Culture of Russia, the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, as well as other national museums and private collections. Professionalism of the artist is also confirmed by awards received in local and international cultural space.
