"I love the way Agnese Kurzemniece depicts seemingly ordinary people, in an ordinary setting, while conveying out of the ordinary meaning."
Saatchi Online ARTPARIS Showdown Finalist.

Two of my paintings have been chosen as finalists in this international competition and this one has been awarded - Gallery Director's Award.
"The Canons, is elegantly disturbing and beautiful. Kurzemniece's composition captures this juxtaposition perfectly. The figure can be standing comfortable in her own body or posing indifferently to the objectified view. The mother and child image can represent happiness and fulfillment or expectation and rules. The intense eyes of the dog can be asking us - is she bound by impossibly beautiful standards or free to be herself?"
