“Look how I move”
Kristine Narvida is a Latvian academic visual artist born in 1977. She graduated in 2006 as a Magister at the Latvian Art Academy in Riga. She lives and works in Germany in Potsdam and Berlin. She is an active member of the Brandenburg Association of Artists. She presents and sells her fine artwork throughout Europe and globally with online galleries. Kristine prefers working with oil on linen, using models as her subjects.
The relationship between certain parts of the work and its entireness excites me. I shape my space of solitude and the work that evolves lives its own life, defiantly independent of me. I like to wonder how colors happen and to maintain the dimensions in constant tension. That is instantaneous awareness of fulfilment that can just as instantly disappear. My search involves clear form-expressed messages in which what is present asks for the truth. The gaze is not a simple movement of eyes, it involves knowledge, experience and an explanation. I go through this process, overcome myself and this leads to the choice I have made and gives me joy as a creator.
It is important for me to know that this is exactly the real and only life, and not a place for nostalgia after another one. Through the understanding of time, the acceleration of which we can physically feel, through the vis-à-vis of a living human model, a pause is created, a place is created for the emergence of the present. Every line and every brushstroke are precise, just like every meeting with this person, a dream, a thought. A technical work with a thought makes it possible to see how the ideal becomes material. I observe the movement, participate in it, and this process is what gives honour and meaning, joy and suffering.
