Solo exhibition by Edīte Pauls-Vīgnere “Taste of Vine”
Edīte Pauls-Vīgnere is one of best known Latvian textile artists. In the early 1970s she presented herself as a bright individual, creating large-scale, ambiguous and technically sophisticated compositions. The coexistence of different surfaces and materials, just like viewing in the theatre, can be seen in the small forms displayed
in this exhibition, featuring colour, reflections of lace patterns, a special touch of glass and the interplay of materials. New, previously unseen works created between 2017 and 2019 in a unique technique are exhibited here. They show how a traditional painting interacts with contemporary fiber art in the result of creativity. The theme of glass, uniting the works entwined with glasses, goblets, bowls and beads, is a tribute to the artist’s Grandpa, the Iļģuciems glassblower Ādolfs Pauls. The artist was inspired by her beloved Persian poet Omar Khayyam.
