About Agnese Kurzemniece
Born in Riga, Latvia. MFA in Graphic Arts. Visual Artist, focus on Printmaking, Illustration, Graphic Design and Painting. "For me the work first has meaning when there enters an exploration or investigative process. Otherwise it is just a mechanical process. The question is always the same: how can I tell the story that is so necessary to tell? Stories are the way in which we orient ourselves in relationship to ourselves, to others, and to our surroundings. A picture is an unspoken thought, or seen in a slightly larger perspective... " Exhibited since 1990. Member of The Chamber of Graphic Art ("Grafikas Kamera").
