Aiva Roga, female artist from Latvia, currently living in Denmark, goes under the artist name - pseudonym Chabata. Web page: www.chabata.webs.com Works with collages, graphical paintings, illustrations and light objects in mixed media. Interested in surreal, fairytale, illusion, imaginary labyrinth world. The main art subjects are human mental games, identity, gender power, the male & female, hermaphrodite, destiny, universe, space and God in all of it. They all play their part in an absurd tale that very well could mirror the mass production of the commodity and „the culture of the same”. Where does that leave the body, how are we influenced in a space, related with space? Inspired by portrait, presenting personality and individuality in mass culture, as self loving philosophy "love of looking". Masked faces show’s painless, problematic process to reflect on society as isolated pocket of emotions. Portrait symbolic transformations into culture of kitsch. Figures like strange reflections of modern humanity mixed with pompous, paralyses, baroque portrait style, mixture of narcissism, unrest, isolation, balances enigmatically between past and present. Figures has a distinctive impression of classical beauty, horror and melancholy. Portrayed modern - mythological aliens, nude body, human mutation with vegetables and animals, expressing own pocket philosophy. Interested in echo, recycled art, using second hand materials. Recycling art makes a comment on the throwaway culture of today - a pop culture without thought. Questioning what defines our existence as a people, culture and society? What are our values in general? Pictures tells about the big idea of human existence and universe.
