Gunta Anita Krumins
Gunta lives in Oundle, Northamptonshire.
The metamorphic chemistry of the fiery kiln, the viscosities, gravity, time and light, all contribute to Gunta’s final product. She considers her work to be something that samples the universe, rather than depicting it. Gunta believes that the artist acts as an agent for these forces and she is always astonished by the universe as she finds it.
Her work evokes a minimalist object, into which are gathered the dispersed accumulations of time. The object looks to liberate the sensuous spirit trapped within the viewer, perhaps even of triggering a sense of familiarity, of physicality, or conversely of otherworldliness.
Much of Gunta’s work has its origins in her unconscious. Shapes appear to her, when she has found that space of quietness, somewhere between dreaming and being awake. Therefore these shapes and forms, for her, hold an enormous personal content and cannot be divorced from her autobiography. But these abstract narrative run alongside the narratives of nature and time, space and shadow, memory and desire. We all of us have real and imaginary landscapes within us, that open out our human experience.
Glass carries an extraordinary conceptual richness expressed through transparency and translucence, fragility and transience. Through her work, Gunta has captured memories of her own; hopes, losses, loves; they refract her life and dreams, part heavy, part light – pulled together they are just an instance in the flow of things.
