Inese Verina-Lubina

«I had a recurrent dream in which I would fall helplessly into a blue and silent abysm: the depth of strange waters ruled by dazzling anguish. In this abysm the anguish temptingly glimmers and invites us to languish within it. If I have enough breath for few moments to observe this strange underworld – it’ll be complete, incredibly complex and absolutely alien.»
/I. Verina-Lubina/
