IN SOME WORDS
Daiga Alise has been exhibiting her works since 2008. Her paintings represent a mixture of highly colourful and simple, but inherently strong art forms contrasting each other. The masculine appeal of her work is offset by a fragile, more sensitive feminine aspect.
Her works are further characterised by a perpetual search for paradoxes, the result of illusions created by the visible world and its different sentiments. Through her work, Daiga Alise aims to reveal the hidden thoughts and feelings of an interior world filled with questions and emotions driven by the belief that the visible, tangible sights and emotions are only a small part of a much larger hidden truth.
Her work is both highly personal and singularly aesthetic. It has gained international recognition and is housed in private collections in the United States, Latvia, Canada, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and France.
