This financial support allows students to completely devote themselves to the study process and creative ideas, contributing to the excellence in research and development of knowledge-based society in Latvia. The Art Academy of Latvia is satisfied for the opportunity to support creative endeavour of students and contribution to the development of research.
The main strategic aim of the Academy is a comprehensive development of art, design, research and higher education by strengthening the synergy between artistic creativity and theoretical research and the retention of studies, enhancing further development and research of visual culture.
Now the Art Academy of Latvia offers programmes in 14 branches of studies and ensures education in all academic qualification levels — Bachelor, Master and Doctoral.
Faculty of Visual Arts offers specialisation in painting, graphic art and textile art, Faculty of Visual Plastic Arts — in sculpture, ceramics and glass art, Faculty of Design — in functional design, environmental art, metal design and fashion design, Faculty of Audio-Visual Media Art — in stage design and visual communication, and Faculty of History and Theory of Arts — in restoration and history and theory of visual art and culture.
Every year more than students acquire knowledge and skills in the Academy, starting the study process after serious competition and gaining opportunity of professional development under the guidance of nationally and internationally recognized teachers — prolific artists, distinguished researchers and scholarly academics.
The Institute of Art History of the Art Academy of Latvia is the only institution in Latvia working on fundamental research in visual art and architecture in Latvia and related regions, as well as on development of art theory and methodology. Study activities in the Art Academy of Latvia are collegial and focused on individual approach, freedom and prolific artistic creativity, enhancing growth and development of personality. Main feature of the study programmes is the synergy of classic and contemporary art education.
Talented students acquire both the disciplines of classic art — drawing, painting, figuration, and traditional techniques of a chosen study discipline and they are also invited to experiment freely, to work interdisciplinary and to apply innovative methods, new media and other contemporary tools according to the artistic conception. Our academic tradition is dynamic — it uses historical traditions for the creation of future.
An essential part of the study process is purposefully directed international cooperation and extracurricular activities. The Art Academy of Latvia has signed more than hundred cooperation agreements with leading art and design higher education institutions of Europe in the framework of lifelong learning programme Erasmus.
Mobility activity within Erasmus programme is being improved every year by increasing the number of partnerships and outgoing and incoming students. Students of the Art Academy of Latvia are participating actively in Erasmus mobility for placements in enterprises and organisations of other European countries.
Participation of new prospective artists, designers and art theorists in projects of international scale and significance is an integral part of the study process, enabling students to organize and participate in exhibitions, workshops and symposiums, gaining achievements in international contests, participating in artistic mobility, residence, and experience exchange projects with peers in Latvia and abroad. My Master diploma work addresses the issue of correlation between an environmental artwork and a spectator.
What kind of contact with an artwork is the spectator ready for? This is an essential question for me as for the creator of the environment and senses, and as for the coordinator of events. My intent is to make an environmental object that will represent the festivity of the inner yard of the Art Academy of Latvia, gathering around it people from the city centre. The main task of the object is to motivate the audience to interact.
I have long wanted to create a work of glass, which would be a monumental interior decor. Water and sky possesses the illusion of depth and it can soothe.
The work features a certain rhythm and colour change thus creating a monumental object which is composed of a synergy of several parts forming a common composition.
The overlaying glass layers create paint thickness, depth and certain shift. Criteria of well-being and sustainable living, as well as creative homestead resource usage are the main research issues in this thesis.
The aim of this design work is to explore untraditional and design usage opportunities of the homestead resource — bush mass, using certain traditional crafts. The Shelter is a group of wickerworks located in a rural landscape and reflecting correlation of processes of nature and human activity. The reason of this work is to create a recreational environment where to take a rest from the city crowd, stress, noises and dust.
Material — growing and cut bushes. Process — form of dialogue between nature and human being — transformation of bushes into creative material and expression. Each object of the Shelter group is made using different technique and typical qualities of osiers — early-ripening, ability to layer, a volume of leafage, elasticity of the wood and endurance.
Figuratively reserved as if abrupt in motion or on the contrary, frozen in motion, fragmentary, megascopic depiction of hands which at the same time is rich in hatching, chiaroscuro and gray tonalities from pure white to black.
By investigating encounter of two persons the author explores the space created in the act of communication, the space with emotions. It is a narrative about the emotions created in a relationship, about the joy and the despair of a relationship, about the density of emotions, about deep and fragile relationships and about their subtle nature. All that is variable and beautiful. And sometimes not so beautiful, but challenging.
Painting, photography and nature are among my interests. My goal is maximal growth of mind and professional skills by developing myself and the society. For me a painting is a way how the invisible becomes visible. There is a lot of beauty in art and it is a source of endless enjoyment.
The archive is being created as a basic foundation for the prospective museum, thus the place is made for keeping and further collection of historical evidences. The development of this safe archive will boost the confidence in people to trust the museum the evidences they own related to the paper mill and its history.
There they will be available for the general community and next generations. This unique factory is the oldest industrial company in Latvia and after two years — in — it will celebrate its anniversary. The factory bears cultural and historical value not only for Latvia and Baltic States, but for the whole Europe. The paper mill has preserved evidences on paper production traditions since the beginning of 19 century.
Indeed, the factory developed from the small mill where the paper production was handmade to the modern industrial unit. Before the beginning of restoration the painting was in a critical condition and seriously damaged: a mould, grime, overpainting, deformation of basis, ruptures, punctures, degradation of the varnish layer, craquelure of ground and paint layers, and losses. Difficulties for my restoration work were caused by a prior unprofessional repairing which made the basic material of the painting solid and fragile.
Investigation and complicated conservation work of the painting were done in the framework of my Bachelor thesis and it is planned to realize complete restoration of the painting during my master studies. After the restoration the painting will be placed in the initial location — on a retable of the altar of Jaunsaule Evangelical Lutheran Church — thus renewing another cultural monument in Latvia. My spatial pursuits and solutions in fibre art reflect this interest.
The subject of my research is the development of history of architecture and urban planning, with the focus on urban studies of Riga in the period after industrial revolution. The research issues are very topical, however until now their reflection in publications of respective disciplines were mainly superficial or thematically narrow. In the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century there was an extensive construction of water reservoirs, water towers, water pumping stations, gas reservoirs, gasworks, sewerage pumping stations, electric power stations, electric transformer pavilions etc.
These industrial buildings belonged to a rather new and specific typological group of the industrial architecture. Silvija Grosa. Creation of sculptures is like a relaxation which takes away from the daily routine and frees the mind from negative energy and gives enjoyment to the spectator at the end.
While studying and improving my skills in sculpture work I have realized that the process of improvement is never ending. And my aim is to develop my knowledge and skills at higher level — both in theory and in practice.
Technological consultations with the manufacturer - bath factory PAA has already been carried out during the development of the work. In the future, the intention is to create variations of different shapes of this bath by also adjusting them to a smaller bathroom and creating a collection with appropriate sinks.
In the future my creative activities will be related with universal and sustainable design. I am also interested in the use of solar energy as a sustainable source of energy in product design.
Up till now my professional experience was only related to the architectural design but recently I started to work in the field of architectural academic education which I find exciting.
My further research activities will be linked to the theory of architecture and 20th century history of architecture in Latvia. I also intend to continue the preparation of various publications, articles and interviews for the professional architecture media.
In this research theoretical writings and original views and judgements on architecture are considered. Thesis shows the summary of the main topics and most prolific authors. The systematization and interpretation of the main themes are based on consideration on actual processes in the architecture and building realization, on inevitable presence of the Soviet ideology and rhetoric, as well as on parallel historical processes in the territory of the USSR and the West.
In the framework of this Thesis the theoretical articles are accepted as a part of the history of architecture of Soviet Latvia. The research theme is considered to be an actual topic as after a period of neglection of the Soviet heritage in recent years the society has begun to recognize and appreciate the Soviet architecture in both Latvian and European context.
Be Observant! Exhibition Alone at the Gallery Supernova, Riga. Observation feelings created with contemporary technologies are manifested through the means of visual expression.
Google Earth satellite images were used here as a raw material for the artwork. Layer painting serves for creation of volume illusion. My activities include organisation and development of workshop series, performances and exhibitions in the framework of Creative Coding field. Currently living and working in Helsinki, Finland. The sculpture has a form of hemisphere that consists of triangles — during the installation loop, main elements of the structure are being discussed, and they are being compared to fragile structures of human inner nature.
This work portrays a fragment from human everyday perception experience. It includes the exploration process of the outside world and how this process cooperates with the subjective reflection mechanism.
My work installation HOME. This is the way to raise awareness of the creations of birds that live near to us. While studying at the Department of Visual Communication I have gained a wide experience about the value of idea and choosing appropriate technologies. In the near future I will continue to develop my current creative approach. I am also planning to widen my horizon in the field of design in the Netherlands.
