Elīna Titāne (1978)

Elina Titane represents the younger generation of modern ceramic art in Latvia. Emotional and sensually high-strung ceramic artworks by Elina Titane always kindle imagination of the viewer and create an idle flow of associations. She lets us have a look in her inner world of anxieties and emotions, seeking for answers in harmonic silence. Throughout her artworks, she seemingly poses a definite question to the viewer: Is it possible to compare creative work with phenomena, which are existent in nature? Creativeness to her is a source of nature, inherent in each of us, it is like rain, which awakens the inner potential of ideas, makes ideas come to life, grow, transform and materialize in art objects. The indirect, associative, fragmentary way she applies in conveying the artistic idea is a consistent and convincing instrument of her artistic expression. For her it is a certain way to avoid analytical thinking and develop a more profound insight. She releases the flow of free associations, where countless parallels and dimensions merge, and there are no definitely set borderlines between Time and Space, Beginning and End. What is going on under one sphere keeps going on also under millions of others. Everything is bound together in Infinity. Nature processes are working analogous to thinking.
