"JOURNEY" - Tatjana Krivenkova & Olga Shilova

Tatjana Krivenkova is a well known painter with a cultivated and extremely fine sense of colouring. Her recent paintings represent the purest expressions of absctraction. Like Peter Hoeg describes Smilla's Sense of Snow, Tatjana Krivenkova paints various light reflections – play of light on different surfaces, light divagation from darkness and pollution of light. The large-scale glazed and matted canvases are almost monochromatic, with only tiny brush strokes creating fine nuances in tone. She attempts to paint endless space, which has nothing to do with the flat surface of a painting and is something more than tones and forms for some decorative purposes. (Ilze Zeivate)

Olga Shilova's sculptures always attract attention with their reality, humaneness, simplicity and exquisite, even sensual treatment of the material- bronze or aluminium surface.
The artist likes creating by hand and handling herself even large-scale works that are placent in urban space. The basis of her works is sculptural form, which Olga Shilova artisticially deforms, lengthening the proportions, thus creating her own world of images, very personal and emotional. (Ilze Zeivate)
