Painting: Oil on Canvas.
"The space has fascinated me since childhood. The idea of this exhibition was born from the completely new discovery of existence of a hypothetic large planet in the Solar System, named The Ninth Planet or The Planet X. Scientists’ supposition of a possibility that this planet exists emerged, when distribution of strange objects striving to connect had been noticed in the Universe(https://www.space.com/planet-nine-easier-find-than-thought.html). NASA researchers proposed a hypothesis that they are probably exposed to a larger object’s gravitation", tells Gundega Duduma, the author.
"I feel myself and the people next to me as incompletely studied, undiscovered planets. Everything is interrelated: the space, planets, people and nature – as interrelated parts affecting each other in a constant interaction. After all, we don’t comprehend the whole potential of our own energy and creative power. Through my works I want to share with you love, joy, strength and self-confidence."
During this creative period the artist has turned to the abstract genre of painting, using large format canvas of various patterns and factures. Gundega finds, sews, upholsters and primes them herself. This is when the first contact with the work takes place. Additionally to abstractions, Gundega continues focusing on such actual subjects, as femininity, sensuality and style icons being typical in various periods.
