The Raimonds Staprans show captivated me with the strong compositions and the luscious color fields. The paintings have an underlying loose painterly quality that is revealed in the transition areas between the colors. These small transition strips of varied colors give the that art depth and interest. Staprans perspective of viewing the scene from above made me feel that I was in an imagined world based on pure geometric design. Most of the paintings have a quality of radiant light that is amplified by the simplicity of the painting. The deep rich color of the paintings must be viewed in person to fully appreciate this great artwork.
