This exhibition is an overview of his ouvre since 2014, when K.Zarins has ventured out of his previous, figurative period, the “Pedants” series and is experimenting with abstraction.
The exhibition “Domas šķērsgriezums” gives a unique opportunity to see two distinctive series of K.Zarins’s abstractions and to observe his creative thought process cut in section. For instance “Bez norādēm” (“Without indications”, 2014) shows the courage with which Zariņš threw himself into painting whirlpools of light and colour.
“Dzīvais ūdens”(“Vivacious water”, 2017) and “Atstarotā gaisma” (“Reflecting light”, 2017) are two artworks created specifically for this exhibition. While exploring the links between art and nature, the essence of wood as a material is revealed. By exposing the natural layers of wood, Zarins gives an opportunity for the material itself to tell its story. More artworks of this series can be viewed at Kaspars Zarins and Vija Zarina solo show in exhibition hall Arsenāls till 29th of October.
