ARTIST DETAILS

SANDRA STRELE

LATVIA

“I try to combine the traditional issues of painting with the characteristics of contemporary context, creating large-scale painting-based installations in which I always try to keep the ‘pure painting’ as the dominant media. Creating painting-based installations is a way to make a stronger link with the viewer, ‘speculating’ not only with the attractive and lovable visuality the paintings usually try to develop within the possibilities of the medium, but also focusing on the narrative of the piece itself which is usually text, sound or object based.”

ARTWORKS

Cycling lll N°0408

The painting series "cycling"reflects different layers of everyday life, human world and nature structures and the overall known proceedings humanity takes into consideration. In this series using some well known substantial elements I tried to depict and analyze the spiral movement and its cycles the world has showing that people , material things and nature are not only constantly changing but also leaving a lot of visual materials for memories.
I use an element of herbarium constructed from human figures as a metaphor of human individual life cycles that can be collected and dated like plant herbariums where collected and dried plants are not in their normal environmental system anymore, but they continue being live, narrative and maintaining "their" memories. In the painting the small fragments of an abstract forest or floral forms contain a reference to the very similar nature cycles.
