There is ‘Still Life’ in Karlis Mednis

karlis mednisKarlis Mednis is not so well known in the international art arena, but I find his work vibrant and energetic. Karlis was born in Russia in 1910, and studied at the Latvian Riga School of Art, before he emigrated to Australia in 1949.  A painter of draughtsman-like qualities, Karlis worked in several media, frequently painting cityscape, still life and marine subjects and won several awards. His works are represented in the National Collection, Canberra, and in several provincial galleries. Unfortunately, Karlis left this mortal coil in 1999 to a higher painting field.
