Image of Ibid. London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Jānis textures new spaces to think about a shared past. - Drenched Co.

Comment: "Janis paints with the softest of touches, almost as if he is painting primarily to tease out the bumps and irregularities in his canvases, to individually mark them out, one highlighted bump at a time. And with every circled flaw, Janis textures the collective moments that are remembered as the soviet era. One of the  remarkable things about collective memory is that is has texture and that it relies on the materiality of trace. For me, Janis' paintings show memories of a bygone era that have been encoded in postures, clothes and bodily practice brought to primacy by their texture. Loved it! " - JayZee
