Tilde has launched an excellent project to promote Latvian art and show the close link between the culture and technologies. We take to incorporating works of young Latvian artists into images of Tilde’s products. This visual frame is going to be changed on regular basis to display the most fascinating pieces created by young artists.

The Artist

   

A few words about myself

    

Curriculum Vitae

Evija Freidenfelde Sedleniece

 

My emotional life can be described as a sparkling cocktail of excesses, which I try to tame and preen to make it easier to live. Every day at work, I am far away from art; self-control in the lawyer's job is a more than necessary feature. I am happy to express my emotions in painting and thus let my hair down.

My oil paintings contain my emotions and feelings that have accumulated and suddenly ring a bell and do not leave me alone till I have not expressed them in images and colors. Since painting is my major leisure passion, I do it vigorously and enthusiastically, I experiment with colors and styles, and, what is the most important for me — I make the painting process fun. In painting in general and in works of other artists, I look for the ability to express emotions and mood with colors and images through reshaping of the setting and characters instead of copying the reality. I could paraphrase words of Kurt Vonnegut: „My art is a flight of a soul broken by gravity”.

For me, painting is a way to experience the imperceptible, to attempt reproducing the unreproducable, to say the unsayable. It is a language enabling me to
communicate in levels beyond words. And — succumbing to the creative,
loving power in me!

Therefore, abstraction is my most favourite trend in art. It does not prompt how to look and what to think. Often, viewers are scared at this trend as it seems to be complicatedly not to understand what is depicted. However, exactly the attempts to understand restricts you the most, puts you in a frame, stereotypes, representations, prevents you from experiencing the live, sublime, creative, mysterious in yourself and in the world around yourself.

Therefore, such art also from the viewer requires indulgence, sensitiveness, intuitive watching, co-feeling. It must not be understood; allow it to touch, stir, vibrate, inspire you!

„Once upon a time, there was a circle. It was drawn in sand on a seashore. „I know the secret of infinity”, the circle said. The sea splashed a wave of water and erased a part of the circle. „Infinity is alive”, it said.” (J. Rubenis, M. Subačs)

I think on similar lines and invite you to look for a mystery both in life and art!
