“The Past Stops Now” is a survey of paintings and drawings from 2008 to 2021 by Peteris Ciemitis
This exhibition deals with the effects of societal and technological change on behaviors and psyches, particularly the part runaway change plays in generating a background anxiety which has become commonplace today. Rather than simply depicting the outward effect of these changes, the works focus on our internal state, and our loss of groundedness.
