/The source of all light is in the eye/ —Alan Watts
Exhibition in Bastejs Gallery (Riga, LV) from October 18 until November 11, 2018. In White Light, Ritums Ivanovs explores light transforming into black-and-white charcoal drawings and plaster works. They can be viewed from a sociological point of view as well as quite mundanely, as luminous mood paintings or detailing the realm around the artist.
White Light is the third solo exhibition of Ritums Ivanovs in Bastejs Gallery after Symbol of Illusion of 2013 and Connect of 2016. After the exhibitions, the works have been exhibited at international art fairs Volta Basel 2013, Start Art Fair at Saatchi Gallery London 2015, Scope Miami 2016, Luxembourg Art Fair 2017, Scope Art Fair Basel 2017 and Context Art Fair of New York 2017.
