The artist Artis Nīmanis refers to himself as “a glazier”, because glass — a material offering amazing possibilities and versatile metamorphoses — forms the basis of his creative quests. In architecture glass offers not only new dimensions and light, but it can also create innovative design objects and impressive art installations.

The range of artistic expressions of Artis Nīmanis is vast. Artis Nīmanis creates glass design objects and ornaments, but his work focuses on more monumental projects too — functional and decorative glass design elements for the interior design and architectural objects, exclusive stained-glass windows, lighting fixtures and skylight solutions.

The exhibition “Sun and Moon” is the materialisation of experiments and most recent ideas of the artist: thanks to the original author’s technique, the glass surface is given a mirror effect, which, as it breaks the light beam, creates illusory optical effect. The exhibition objects have two laconic shapes — a circle and an ellipsis, which in a way symbolise the sun and the moon.

This exhibition offers the visitor an opportunity to enjoy a meditative experience and to discover the unusual transformations of this seemingly familiar material.
