Sprezzatura. II, 2019
mixed media on canvas
This painting is a part of the graduation work exposition, which is set as a dialogue between works that have been created intentionally and the unintentional consequences surrounding them – accidents or fragments from the artists’ studio space. Author invites the viewer to look upon both these phenomena as equally valuable, as two sides of a coin. She also poses a question – what makes effortless accidents so alluring and why do so many artists, including the author herself, strive to imitate them. The work itself is an open question; a space for the viewer to step in and find his own answer. Currently exhibited in the graduation show of Art Academy of Latvia, taking place at the Former Faculty of Biology, Kronvalda Boulevard 4, until the 28th of June.
