LATVIA

Open throughout June, Solo Exhibition by Kristine Kutepova, ‘Visions’, Riga Art Space, Riga

“Visions” is Kristine Kutepova’s first such large-scale solo exhibition. It will convey a picture of individual scenes and events seen by the young artist, with an equal emphasis on the subtleties of everyday life and the spiritual exploration of Eastern philosophy. The most important thing in a painter’s handwriting is color, shape and texture. The color spaces, their contrasts are most often arranged impulsively, freely and enthusiastically, using both miniature canvas and large formats, so they can be created with fine brush lines. The artist’s view on different topics ranges from abstract to pop artistic visions, where even a discussion on the most serious event can be transformed into something playful. The tickets price range EUR 2.50-5.00. More info on the exhibition can be found at www.makslastelpa.lv 

 

LITHUANIA 

Open throughout June, Exhibition by Linas Leonas Katinas, ‘Red Becomes White whilst Falling’, National Gallery of Art, Vilnius

‘Red Becomes White Whilst Falling’, an exhibition by Linas Leonas Katinas, invites the audience to gaze upon the artist’s mundus imaginalis: an imaginary world, wherein reflections on quotidian, historical and individual worldviews, cross with the mythic, archetypal and symbolic. Like a bird’s nest, Katinas’ world of painting is constructed from local materials in his environment – the structure relying on, and being dictated by, his intuition. Further, his work utilizes abstraction, tachisme and elements of conceptual art language while simultaneously drawing from spatial-structural thought processes acquired in the fields of architecture, theatre and film. Please note that there might be some slight changes in working hours due to quarantine, thus please double check museum opening hours beforehand. For more information please visit www.lndm.lt
