    The main theme of cycle “EMPTY” is relationships between memory and place. Occasionally I have had a feeling that a certain place or room has its memory – perhaps because it contains traces of the time that has passed away. It is as if I could catch some thoughts of persons that have inhabited the place. Offices after closing, classrooms after lessons, motels after the guests have left, and apartments in the morning: they are full of dreams, thoughts and energies by persons unknown to me. These places seem to become alive in my imagination, I am full of expectations that something is going to happen; indeed, there is even a hint of scare in the air… Yet they remain silent and still, with their secrets and memories unrevealed. 

    Works from the cycle "EMPTY" are in the collection of Latvian Nacional Museum of Art
