Art Brussels (http://www.artbrussels.com/) is a fair, which has been established 33 years ago and has a strong focus on international contemporary art. The fair has been expanded over the years and now boasting 200 galleries from all around the world. Latvia was represented at the SOLO section – Alma Gallery (Riga) showed works by Andris Eglītis, one of the artists representing Latvia (together with Katrīna Neiburga) at the Venice Biennale 2015. Eglītis’ series of photographs “Possible Place” were made with his family heritage collodion plate studio-camera and framed with the “invisible” Artglass™ by Groglass®, highlighting the beauty of each framed artwork, which are all unique in their poetic and delicate way, and at the same time dark appeal.
“We had a challenge to retain and accentuate all the delicate nuances of the photos. We have used Artglass™ before, when we framed especially valuable artworks. For us it is the best choice for picture framing, because it has improved transmission and it protects the artworks against the damaging UV rays. We are proud that this premium quality glass is manufactured in Latvia and we are grateful for support from the Groglass® team”, comments Astrīda Riņķe – the founder and sole director of Alma Gallery.
Company Groglass® is honoured to support young and talented artists and wishes Andris Eglītis success and new achievements.
