The concept of BECOMING is about the process of “beginning to be” / “growing to be”. With two years to go until the completion of their bachelor's degree, these artists find themselves in an ever-changing state of mind, exploring various styles and techniques. Some artworks look at you directly with humour and provocation, while others delve into the abstract realm of shapes and colours representing psychological self-portraits.
The exhibition will present paintings made with oil, acrylic, works made with nylon and found materials, as well as installation pieces. Through BECOMING, M/Gallery is looking forward to starting a yearly tradition with art students.
Featured artists are: Alise Kiampo, Beatrise Estere Kaminska, Diāna Stopiņa, Elīna Vagre, Gundega Brūvere, Ina Kantiķe, Ivars Pommers, Katrīna Sēle, Kristiāna Poce, Madara Freidenfelde, Renāte Pagaste, Roberts Brastiņš, Stīna Skulme, Tonijs Strods.
Opening hours on 30.06 (RLT) 18-22
