Variation 75

Carmine Square – Variation 75 | 2017 | 50x50cm | Cut faux leather and led lights I just want things to happen. And to make them truly happen – that is, not as a result of the arrogant will of the “artist”, but as a consequence of a natural interaction between all the forces in […]

Plasmantico and Nebulante

In the Nebulante (acting nebula) and Plasmantico (plasma-shaped) series I explore the infinite possibilities of a creative universe shaping itself. When you leave behind any futile wish of poietic planning, what remains is a utopic procedurality. Memory is a plasmatic entity enslaved (but also freed) by the uni-versal flux that repeats itself: only through human procedures the […]

The thought that devours

Portraits

I live in Latvia. Winters in this country can be pretty harsh, with long periods of intense cold, dark, completely covered gray skies, and a little wind. Not a strong one, but continuous and gelid. I often find myself sitting there, looking outside of the window, at the gray sky where clouds move fast, a […]
