Kaspars Zariņš sees the world with childlike directness and naivety, free of humbug, and this is something you cannot learn – you either have it or you don’t. I agree, although there is no such thing as absolute truth. My painting is and remains Kaspars Zariņš’ “Sunny Day”, and it represents a watershed between the way he was before the exhibition “Oh, Happy One!” and after this self-exhibiting in Gallery Daugava in 2000. I will not speak about his painting periods and influences or analyse them, although I could if I pulled my socks up, and sometimes I do just that.
My conclusion: something significant changes in him every ten years, although the pillars of his painting are still beauty and sadness,” writes Anda Treija.
