"The painting of Edvards Grube could be equivalent with the term of Time. In fact, Grubes’s painting is Time itself, which can’t be measured nor in the past, nor the future. It is found in a constant flow – in Time.
Not described in words, but told by brushstrokes, strong emotional messages, where depicted objects are reduced to a sign – deep notion – a window, light, doors, a chair, a mother with child, bread, fragments of glass…
With a Latvian mentality and peasant-like thoroughness Edvards Grube’s painting reaches the revelation of spiritual tension.
No one in Latvian painting has anything like it – “powerful as thunder” – that is the painting of Edvards Grube,” Ilze Zeivate
