Still time to see exhibition of art at Blackfriars Theatre
Marina Daniluka and Dainis Volodka are showcasing their current exhibition, Art For A Good State of Mind, at the Spain Lane venue until next Saturday, March 3.
Marina, a self-taught artist from Boston, has been creating art for the last nine years, spending one year majoring in Art and Design at Boston College.
She said: “My own work is an experiment in different styles and directions and different techniques - I use a variety of materials.
“I love to work in realism and abstract, impressionism and expressionism and enjoy to combine all of them.”
After spending almost a decade of her life creating art, Marina has developed a love for one particular art material.
She said: “The most favourite material remains, of course, oil paint as I like the textures and layers that can be created to add depth to a painting.”
Dainis took up painting in the last two years, and enjoys it as more of a pastime.
Dainis said: “Painting at the moment is a hobby. It is a great way to spend my free time.”
On the subject of her work, Dainis said: “My paintings are passion, emotions and impressions laid out on canvas.
She added: “I feel happy when creativity brings joy to other people.”
Visitors to the venue can view the paintings in the Foyer Gallery - open between 10am and 4pm Monday to Saturday.
