Kristi Kongi is an artist represented by the Kogo Gallery, who recently got nominated for the artist’s salary in Estonia, which will allow her to devote to her work over the next three years.
Each work in her watercolour series “Is There Any Light And Colour Left?” is like an entry in a diary about the artist’s observations and thoughts over light, colours, and emotions. The titles are like poems. Some of them are quotations from books important to the artist. She started with the series in the spring of 2020 due to the isolation of the pandemics. These works are also part of her artistic process. They are the visual ideas that Kristi later transfers into the form of oil paintings, installations, and exhibitions. The first presentation of the series “Is There Still Light And Colour?” took place at the Kogo gallery as part of the group exhibition “Time to Dream or Fear?“ in 2020.
