Sabīne Vekmane

Sabine Vekmane has graduated from Latvian Art Academy in faculty of graphics. She also teaches silk screen printing at LMA and graphic workshop „Luste”.
Sabine combines silk screen printing technique with painting, based on adding alluring pink to monohrome color harmony. As a reference also is the round and oval format of the works – waters or also artists thought bubbles. Exhibition narrative is based on under water world, where images are abstract and emphasized on their mystical beauty and presence of danger. To dive in water doesn’t mean to fall in it, it’s a choice to see beauty, which wouldn’t be possible without depth. And depth – rarely possible without beauty.
