Kristīna Keire  „Daily Fragments"

Gallery " Māksla XO " from 05.05. - 07.06.2011


"Daily Fragments" - more then any previous exhibition of Kristīna Keire is deeply personal. Personal in feelings, thoughts, more romanticly melancholic. Along with this sensations follows painting itself - tones and halftones are even more refined and  paintings are more fragile, more filigree and emotional.

Those are not extensional researches of blossoms, glass or light, anymore. For now on Kristīna Keire inspiration laboratory has become her own inner world - senses, by using an assistance of association figurative language, emotions are transferred on canvas and shapes are incarnated, colours and figures modelling, delicate refraining from falling in literary narration.

And in the same way as with blossoms and plants in earlier years artwork Kristīna Keire deals with esthetic preparetion by many times enlarging, separating and exploring separate fragments of her daily life and feelings which in the end subordinates to dominant of painting.

Painter Helēna Heinrihsone has said that Kristīna Keire is gifted with an absolute vision, which ensures clearness of shapes and colours and also serves to her's artistic and emotional revelations on small and large size canvas.
