Ilya Lipkin solo exhibition

25 Aug - 08 Oct
Ilya Lipkin is a Riga-born artist, who grew up in New York but currently lives in Berlin. His recent photographic work deals with the merging of public and corporate space. Though Lipkin’s photos are taken in New York, Berlin, and other cities, they impart an eerie sense of sameness. The artist plans a similar approach with his upcoming photo series specially for kim?, which is being put together in Riga and documenting the artist's place of birth and more specifically the suburb he was born in - Purvciems, where he spent the first seven years of his life.

Over the past year, or since her previous solo exhibition, Dace Lielā (1957) has created a new collection of works. We can only guess whether it is nature that inspires her excellent work, or her own thoughts. About ten years ago, the artist worked much in the area of figural painting, but now she concentrates more on nature, which is still just an image which allows to play with different peripheries, moods and experiences. When viewing paintings by Dace Lielā, one must agree that what nature offers is endless, just as the nuances of color and light which can be found in nature.
