Latvian artist Māris Čačka has created a unique hybridical method of abstract expression that integrates painting and graphic art. Works are multilayered in terms of technical explanation and content. They occur as imaginary dialogues between the author and his contemporaries about the sense of the world. An intuitive expression has been aimed at achieving emotional harmony. It finds the potential of openness, both for decorative construction and for symbolic message, of various elements – color, dark and bright areas, and the structures of rhythm.
