Works in Tblisi (GE), born in Riga (LV).
Thea Gvetadze is an artist creating images of enigmatic scenarios, loaded with tension, emotion and symbolism. Experimenting with traditional techniques in clay and textile amongst other materials, Gvetadze’s practice speculates with highly ideosyncratic forms of image making and representation. Her paintings in particular, often painted directly onto black velvet, are vivid recondite compositions unyielding to the pull of such dark and cosmic ground.
