ILZE PREISA

Ilze Preisa's painting is an invitation to beauty, life, and art, that brings new energy which has nothing to do with matter but shines with a supernatural light.

/Simona Scopelliti, Art Historian,Venice/

 

This is an invitation to get acquainted with the artist Ilze Preisa and her work. Let the love of art charm you and take you on a magical journey into the world of colours, fragile beauty, positive emotions, strong characters and life-changing inspiration.

 

Ilze Preisa is a Latvian artist, born in Riga and raised in a family of artists.  She graduated with Honours in Fine Art at the Art Academy of Latvia (LMA) in 2002 and studied at the Berlin University of the Arts  (Hochschule der Künste Berlin, HdK).

 

Ilze has had more than 40 solo exhibitions in her home country and abroad, in places such as Riga, Melbourne, Berlin and Stockholm. She has also participated in more than 140 group exhibitions.

The paintings of Ilze Preisa are multi-layered works, in which different antique and modern characters and symbols, textures and smooth surfaces, modesty and luxury, all freely coexist. Her paintings reveal their mysteries little by little to the patient viewer.

"Referencing the events that occur around us, I paint characters of the mythical world, giving them new shades. The symbols I use in my works can also be included in geometric shapes and arranged in a certain order; they form a new story.

The works are created in many layers, long-lasting, where each detail or symbol has meaning.

The beautiful - sometimes even the aching Beautiful - is important. It is a deliberately chosen artistic form that attracts the viewer and invites them to take a deeper look.

 

Art is my means of communication with the spectator."

/Ilze Preisa/ Project Art and Science/
