Dace Lapina Artist Bio:

Born in Riga, Latvia, Northern Europe. About Me. I have consistently focused on still life genre, where, I believe I can best express myself,making a person look more carefully as if into an instant of stopped time. Such, where in a unified harmony, there exists light, space , object. I enjoy painting commonplace articles inspiring them with an air of perpetual value through my artistic vision. Painting like I do is time-consuming. It is a luxury I afford while refusing myself many other pastimes. I need time even at moments when I seem idle, but that is probably when the ideas are conceived. It is an artist’s life that gets mixed up with everything else. I paint with the conviction that in today’s hectic and rationalized world the art is so much needed to make and teach people stop and get engrossed. Too much nowadays gets declaratively simplified, because people in a hurry continuously get overwhelmed with new information. Thinking is getting more and more primitive as there is no time to think over anything more complex. Therefore, also I am bored with and not attracted to contemporary conceptual art, witch often serves as a tremendous breakthrough the elementary truth that is a conventional wisdom for any thoughtful person. I like the art that makes use of the visual art influential means, rather then the one attempting to feebly compete with philosophers and publishers. Visual art , in my opinion, is to express that , what it is not possible to tell in words. I am not sure whether it is true that beauty is going to save the world but the ugly and destructive things certainly will not.
