Liga Skadina‘s photographs are a place where the artist can find refuge from the world’s adversities, protected by the layer of softness characteristic of her landscapes. Through photography, Liga stops time to linger at the wonderfulness of a moment’s unrepeatability. Her pictures are a meditation, an astral travel where abstract scenes are created by overlapping concrete settings, objects and nature.
Using a self-made light box for negatives, Liga juxtaposes different images, moving them around so that they work together, telling a story, combining negatives with slides or slides with slides. The resulting powerful stories are offered to us under the protective shelter of soft colours and smooth textures.
