UV-print, acrylics and oil on canvas, 106x80 cm, 2023
Inga Meldere describes her works as being about art practices and painting methods. Like the properties of human memory, Inga Meldere’s work is utterly ambivalent: her paintings perturb as much as they exhilarate, combining a sense of belonging, art historical quotes and everyday imagery. In her new series of works, Meldere’s original digital collages printed on canvas are turned into paintings inspired by the switching modes between internet browsing, cultural sightseeing and printed book reading as well as social history and problematics of the Anthropocene.
