Andris Eglītis' «Transitions» on show in Kuldīga

The Kuldīga Artists' Residence is hosting Andris Eglītis' "Transitions" in which the artist explores the passage from two to three dimensions and from the concrete to the abstract, reported Latvian Television Sunday.

"I am interested in the twofold or manifold nature of things, when a painting is merely color on the canvas, then it's an abstract form, and afterwards perhaps it becomes the sky. [..] It's the transition from one way of perception, from one state of understanding or knowing to another. That's what I wanted to get inside these paintings," said Eglītis.

He has studied painting in Latvia, Russia and Belgium and has been participating in exhibitions from 2000.

His works have been on show in Rīga, Antwerp, Berlin and elsewhere. 

In 2013 he was given the prestigious Purvītis' award, and in 2015 he represented Latvia in the Venice Biennial together with Katrīna Neiburga.

The exhibition is on show until July 3.
