ELINA VIRDZINIECE, LATVIA/UNITED KINGDOM
Elina Virdziniece is a Latvian multidisciplinary artist currently working between England and Latvia. She works across installation, painting, and moving image, creating immersive experiences through mixed medium across screen and space. She has been awarded a Bachelor of Arts from Birmingham City University and a Master of Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London.
Elina draws most of her inspiration from the sea, her abstract paintings are the result of a translation of emotions through an encounter with form, texture, and colour. Blues are often recurring in her work. She approaches each medium in a specific way - from moving image to installation and oil painting, each of them is characterized by a different process. The technique of oil painting consists of overlapping, layer by layer, of different colours and textures. She has exhibited in the United Kingdom and the United States.
