Alvine Bautra

Painter, Latvia

Latvian painter Alvine Bautra’s artistic approach in her portrait compositions incorporates the sensation of slow-motion movement. In her works, the painted faces exist in a perpetual state of transition, suspended between past moments and those yet to materialise. Even within the apparent stillness of her figures, a sense of continuous movement is maintained, as genuine tranquillity remains an almost idealistic notion. In Alvine Bautra’s art, the figures engage in an internal dance, with each movement mirroring the rhythm of the soul. For the artist, the concept of movement serves as an inherent metaphor for the human condition, encompassing its multifaceted layers, its diversity and the uncertainty that defines it. Through her paintings, Alvine delineates the complicity of mind and body in existence.
