Whether in completely empty or sparsely furnished rooms - light is always the protagonist in Edite Grinberga's paintings. Luminously captured on sometimes huge canvases, it sometimes sets the scene for a book, sometimes just a white room door. The inhabitants of her light-flooded rooms themselves are not visible, they seem to have just left the room. The viewer feels unobserved, can enter the rooms and come to rest in them.
