Landscape-abstraction paintings exhibition by Anete Kalniņa
Opening of exhibition with participation of the artist on Friday, November 24, at 18.00 o’clock. In the paintings departure from the subject reality in abstractions serves as means to reveal the inner secret sensations of the nature – to look into its soul.
In her abstract landscape paintings Anete Kalniņa involves nearly all of the motives of her surrounding environment and material world as a story of time and space. Every painty stroke of palette knife differs and evolves, and the differential level of colour saturation adds a spatial effect. Organized coincidences, a seemingly careless brush pattern in some places, creates areas full of internal tension and energy. Tree trunks, horizon at the sea, fog and moonlight are structures, which have their form and function rooted in unity in the paintings, creating entirety. The paintings are like atmospherically rapid, powerfully charged flashes of sensations.
The exhibition shows paintings that have been made during the period of 2016-2017.
