Home Shows "I Write on Your Skin How Much I Love You"

CUT ART Gallery invites you to one of the most exciting events in the art world this year - a previously unseen selection of artworks by David Lynch. The exhibition will be on view from 16 July to 1 September, in the new gallery space at Alberta iela 1 and for the first time these works will be available for purchase!

David Lynch lithographs from his private collection which have not been presented in Latvia until now. Most of the works on this selection are surrealistic, figurative and highly dedicated to human unconsciousness which explores authentic feelings. His work is lush, energetic and often saturated with emotion that is otherwise unfantonable and can only be experienced through a dialogue with art. 

David Lynch’s five-decade career spans an extensive range of artmaking including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, music, and film. Describing his creative process, he once said: “I used to go to well-lit diners, because in a well-lit diner I could sit and think and daydream and I could go to dark places knowing that I could surface in a well-lit, safe place.” 

David Lynch is a proponent of transcendental meditation and in 2005 founded the David Lynch Foundation, which provides support through the practice of meditation to students, people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and offers the practice to others who may benefit from it.
