Female artist from Latvia, currently living in Denmark, goes under the artist name - pseudonym Chabata.
Works with multi layer painting-collages, graphic drawings and light objects in mixed media.
Interested in surreal, fairytale, illusion, imaginary labyrinth world. The main art subjects are identity, gender power, the male & female, destiny, universe, space and my personal neurosis. They all play their part in an absurd tale that very well could mirror the mass production of the commodity and „the culture of the same”.
Where does that leave the body, how are we influenced in a space, related with space?
Inspired by portrait, presenting personality and individuality in mass culture, as self loving philosophy "love of looking". In renaissance portrait were representing „king’s power”, in our democracy days each of us should feel as the king. Masked faces show’s that it is a far from painless or unproblematic process to reflect on society, as isolated pocket of emotions and energy. Portrait symbolic transformations into culture of kitsch. Happiness hormones injected by “selling & buying culture”. Graphical figures like strange reflections of modern humanity mixed with pompous, paralyses, baroque portrait style, mixture of narcissism, unrest and isolation. Universe balances enigmatically between past and present. Figures has a distinctive impression of classical beauty, horror and melancholy. Portrayed modern, mythological aliens appears as nude body with colored spots, hidden behind blind vegetable mask, not being able to find own identity, personality and ambitions. Mutation with vegetables and animals, expressing own pocket philosophy.
Interested in echo, recycled art, using second hand materials. Recycling art makes a comment on the throwaway culture of today - a pop culture without thought.
