HELĒNA HEINRIHSONE “DIARY” (until 11.05.2019)

Helēna Heinrihsone is one of the brightest and most versatile painters of Latvia who works not only in oil painting but also in watercolour painting, lithography, porcelain painting and animation. Her power is to change, go to the unknown, discover the new one and return to the once found.

The whole painting of Helēna Heinrihsone can be characterized as diary. Each of her work is a specific event or experienced feelings of painter’s life. Entire painting of Helēna Heinrihsone is about herself, but not closed to the viewer. In the power of Helēna Heinrohsone is to paint deeply personal and to be able to paint it without personal boundaries, where self-experienced joy and feelings become about viewer`s private events and feelings.

For years, nature has been playing an important role in the creative work of Helēna Heinrihsone as a personification of the inner conflict between human feelings and mind. The expressiveness of the landscape serves to reveal human relationships. Peace intertwines with anxiety, softness with roughness. “I dare not write, but with colours I can do everything. Zoom in or out – I always think when I paint. I base in myself, because I don’t understand how you can draw a lot for yourself in other`s ideas”, Helēna Heinrihsone.

Through many roles, Helēna plays one and the main – role of a true artist. With everything, what the audience expects with applause. In her paintings beauty includes the ugly one. You can be relied upon her taste, although colour combinations cannot be called “tasteful”. Her artworks decorate the interiors but they are not part of them. Helen may be extravagant, but does not allow anything vulgar. Her celebrations are legendary, but her paintings are painted in the morning’s silence… Heinrihsone is the idealist of painting. Her world is dominated by talent, imagination, feelings and reflections, and belief that they have a place today. Helen is not going to die as an author and resurrect as a block of interpretation, she seems hoping to stay herself.
