Inese Verina - Lubina
My paintings are the result of studies, sketches, and experiments carried out daily. I am exploring environments where visibility is obstructed, where I can refer to nature and the element; the dark, rain, mist and water. In those environments I seek inspiration, find my truth and create new worlds and meanings. During recent years I am exploring the corporeality of paint, sculpture and drawing. The study of mixed-media expands to rock pigments, carbon paper, sand, construction fillers as well as experimenting with Japanese aquarelle and calligraphy tools in smaller scale watercolor paintings. I like to keep tonality subtle and carefully choose my color palette as well as self-prepare canvases and create my own painting tools.
