In Kurzeme - L. Purmale

At the Gallery Daugava
"Purmale and Polis are names  that magnetically attract the term "Photo Realism" in surveys of Latvian art, although both artists have often energetically opposed it. Their connection with the quite peripheral trend in the global art history poses many riddles but nevertheles fascinates. It is possible that several principles crucial for Purmale`s art can be elucidated, projecting general principles of Photo Realism against the field of artist`s individual practice. [...]

I like distance, that steamed-up window in-between, that prevents Liga Purmale`s paintings from spreading smells and sounds. Painting is painting, there is nothing to prick up ears and nose about. The world is made up by what is visible. The painting`s world."
