More about this artwork
Xuan Paper is traditional Chinese paper used for calligraphy and painting and has more than 1,000 years of history. The main raw materials depending on the type of Xuan paper are: sandalwood and cherry bark, bamboo, mulberry, rice straw, etc. Being very thin paper, Xuan paper becomes wavy and wrinkled when paint is applied. This is corrected by mounting the painting on backing paper. Indre Beinarte is mounting her paintings using traditional wet mounting technique, using homemade natural glue. The paper becomes smooth again; mounting enhances the colors and preserves the painting.

All paintings painted on Xuan paper are additionally mounted on backing paper. This way thin paper becomes firm and smooth.
East Asian ink painting is the basis of Indre's work. Ink painting is based on the same aesthetic and technical principles as calligraphy. Indre is particularly fascinated by East Asian art, philosophy, poetry and nature.
Harmony, contact with nature, simplicity, minimalism, subtlety - these principles of Eastern aesthetics are reflected in Indre's paintings. The paintings maintain a beautiful balance between drawing and white space, the eye glides pleasantly through expressive, long brushstrokes, and equally explores the meticulously painted details. Unlike other types of painting, line and stain are more important here than colour. Whether the line is soft or harsh, solid and long or short, choppy, structured, we get a sense of what the artist is depicting and what she wants to say.
Indrė is also a debut artist. In 2022, she published her own illustrated children's book, Eido's Summer.
