Step into these incredible scenes painted by Madara Tropa! When I gaze at these wonderfully crafted perspectives, I feel connected to the present moment. It allows me to enjoy the peace that comes with nature, and drives me to take part in the day. Take a look at her work below!
Madara Tropa (b. Latvia 1987) is a visual artist based in the United States. She completed her studies at the National University of Latvia, and “La Esmeralda” National University of Art in Mexico City. She has participated in group shows at the Equity Gallery in New York, the Museum of Mexico
City, the Cultural Institute of Aguascalientes, the Modern Art Museum of Toluca, and others. Her artwork probes between the limits of fiction and reality, in the search for her most profound understanding of being. Using painting, installation, and video, Madara constructs dream-like spaces where the sense of human vacancy is uncertain and nebulous. This uncertainty entwines with the materials of ritual and magic, creating temporal shrines of intense auras of reflection, both personal and beyond.
