„My work aims at illustrating the ambiguity and relativity of perception: the way we look at the world building up an image of the whole from different parts and fragments, based on our emotional relationships with and intellectual experiences of any particular image. In perceiving we rely on the role of time and distance in this process of seeing without even being aware of this. My findings apply to the both - time and space as the dimensions that are invisible themselves but can be determined by the movement, changes and distance. I am particularly interested in applying my findings as painter to other media to synthesize new ones and to benefit from the synergy with the other media like drawing, photography, cinematography and installation” - Vineta Kaulaca.

Vineta Kaulaca was born in 1971 in Riga and graduated from The Latvian Academy of Arts. She studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, in the Visual Communication department (UdK Germany) and Humboldt State University, at the Photo and Painting department (California,USA).
