Ivars Heinrihsons

"I have three topics that are inspiring by interchanging one another. In terms of standard phrases, they are three directions that dwells in every person. Also in me. A Horse, a piano and ballet ... The horse is romance, nature with its shapes and expression. The piano is a sign of civilization; lets it be interpreted as a form. But ballet ... It is the quest for an ideal, a dream, existing beyond time and reality.” /Ivars Heinrihsons/
