“The Way” is a double jubilee exhibition of the artist Dina Dubiņa – it is a celebration of the artist’s 65th birthday and 45th annivesary of her creative work. “The way is a movement. Art is my way, through which I go, where I sometimes take refuge, and with which I try to show direction to others. On this way, many doors had to be unlocked to reach the target, many keys also had to be broken, because it is sometimes the hardest thing to find the way, which directly leads to yourself. I am always trying to increase positive energy – enhance light and good feelings. I’m inviting you to travel along the way created by my art together!” the artist says.
“I’m a walker of my own way in the art, - there are no other artists in the world who would create such large-size paintings in enamel technique,”explains the artist Dina Dubiņa. Jewelry enamel paint with which the artist works is usually used in sacral art, royal ornaments, jewelry, because the materials used are very expensive, and the process of creating works is very labour consuming.
