An exhibition of Latvian ceramics artist Lilija Zeiļa has opened at the “Pullman Riga Old Town” hotel in Riga “TRACES. TOUCH. VERSATILITY”

Latvian Centre for Contemporary Ceramics in cooperation with Pullman Riga Old Town Hotel, offer a solo show of Latvian artist Lilija Zeiļa within the framework of the Artist Playground by Pullman programme. The exhibition open for visitors from January 18, 2019.

To celebrate her anniversary, Lilija Zeiļa has prepared a solo exhibition featuring three groups of work – Traces. Touch. Versatility:

Traces – sculpted stoneware plates with impressive folds and decorative elements inspired by natural textures, which reproduce traces of nature’s own touch in all its diversity.

Touch – a wall mounted composition, which, like the imprint of an artist’s finger in clay, remains forever in the viewer’s memory as a bright, vivid and masterfully executed artwork – the artist’s creative touch with which she approaches life.

Versatility seems to be the fittest attribute to the artist’s creative work in general and, more specifically, to the new set of large-scale ceramic works presented in this exhibition – skillfully executed, multifaceted architectural objects whose vertical vector emphasizes their formal expression and pictorial sensuality.

The exhibition of Lilija Zeiļa is a multifaceted, masterly depiction of the artist’s creative touch to life.
