Biruta Delle has always maintained an individual point of view in her artistic activities and life events, and has used painting as a way of revealing the truth. Plots, coded content, and subtexts are of great importance in the works of the artist. In figural compositions, Delle has solved philosophical questions, in portraits she has mainly focused on the revelation of creative personalities, in landscapes the motifs of the outskirts of the city are most often used, in which the specific vision is less important, but the mood, the emotional revelation is suggested. All of the artist's paintings reveal the internal contradictions of her generation, drama, even tragedy, which is often intertwined with direct irony.
