Living classic of Latvian painting Inta Celminja has opened a personal exhibition “Tell the Unspoken” at the National Art Museum

RIGA, March 1 – Sputnik, Simona Alekseeva. The tone at the exhibition “Tell the Unspoken” is set by paintings dedicated to music. Is it possible to convey emotions from listening to an opera aria or a symphony orchestra performance in painting? Inta Tselmini, who usually works with canvas to music, does a great job.

The exhibition summarizes the 50-year career of the artist, who appeared on the Latvian art scene in the 1970s. Five of her works are included in the collection of the Latvian National Art Museum. The rest of the paintings presented in the halls are the property of Inta Celmini. “This is a very small part of my life,” said the artist at the opening of the exhibition. that in the end a completely different exhibition could have turned out. “

The main leitmotif of the exhibition is the music and emotions it gives. Inta is convinced that music and painting have a lot in common. “If you listen to music, its sounds are completely abstract. It’s just as easy to see color combinations without even trying to understand the plot,” explains the artist.

Inta Tselmina prefers to listen to classical music. Of the contemporary composers, he respects two authors: “I’m quite conservative and old-fashioned, and I don’t have much time to study the work of contemporary composers. But, of course, I like Latvian Peteris Vasks and Estonian Arvo Pärt.”

The artist’s paintings depict both the expression with which the musicians perform on stage and the impressions of the works listened to. For example, the curved camp in a red dress “Carmen” (2015), clearly inspired by the opera of the same name by Georges Bizet.

“I don’t know much about music, but it gives me pleasure,” continues Inta Tselmina. – An artist can be inspired by anything. And if the form coincides with the content – it turns out a good job. “

In addition to musical works, the exhibition presents amazingly beautiful landscapes and scenes from life. The artist formulates the idea of ​​her exhibition as follows: “Say the unspoken. There are impressions of nature, there are sketches with the search for form and attempts to divide the theme into its component parts to finally show it as a whole.”
