Helena Heinrihsone


   All my life is solely in paintings. The biggest disappointments. The biggest dramas are connected with my failures in painting. I have never had such experiences with people, as I have had with my paintings or the creations of others.

Helena Heinrihsone  


   In the Latvian pictorial art the name of Helena Heinrihsone is associated with things distinctive only to her: being too open, too colorful, and too expressive. But her challenge has never been self – aimed or empty. Someone had named it area painting (during the 1990’s) but Helena has always emphasized the esence of content through purity of color and form.

Ivars Heinrihsons

Ivars Heinrihsons (1945) is the finest exponent of lyrical Neo-expressionism in Latvia contemporary painting. His is a sophisticated achromatic palette of colours where a black line or field is the basis of eerything providing expression and stability. The painter’s cources of inspiration are very concrete and reveal the inner forms of expression of his ego.

Ilze Žeivate

Ivars Heinrihsons is open to the world and other media, he can give in for eksperiments beyond the two-dimensional plane, but his inheret perfectionism makes him work to refine of what has been found, for it is the only way to achieve quality.  Unobtrusively yet steadily, he concentrates ever more on particular increasingly abstracted images (the piano, horses and – horses again), the expressive power being combined with laconism or sophisticated linearity, and every compositional, tonal or textural detail pbtains growing importance.

Anna Heinrihsone

Anna Heinrihsone has graduated stage designing in Latvian Art Academy. And until this moment she has been making decorations and costumes for about 30 shows in various theatres in Latvia, and has earned approving valuations. However, parallel to scenography she is also painting.

It is an absolutely solitary world of images - Anna Heinrihsone's "theatre of mimes", in which every new painting is perceptible as a sequel of the last.

The artist in her paintings has directness typical to the drawing of children, and it leads us into ironical, stinging and tragicomic world of images, and the faces of the people that show their experienced revelation of lifetime - old and young -, angels, circus clowns, masks - all of them cry and laugh, grieve and pause in an emotional heighteness.
