Valdis Bušs (1924-2014)
In Talsi. 1994
Painter-expressionist, very productive, was long-time head of Jūrmala Artists’ Association. Painted landscapes, still-lifes, abstract colour compositions. His main means of expression – colour, often with thick impasto and with the help of putty-knife; the overall structure of the painting as well as the mood in a major key is subordinated to the materiality of paint. Valdis Bušs often painted in Talsi and met with Talsi artists in shared plein-airs.
