"Jaunā Gaita" is a Latvian quarterly devoted to literature, the arts, and the discussion of ideas.
"Our featured artists are Lilija Dinere and Roberts Diners. Much of their art is collaborative, as in the illustrations accompanying some verses of Old Icelandic song, newly translated by poet Uldis Bērziņš (pages 1-3). Many other examples of their art are displayed throughout this issue. Art editor Linda Treija writes: “The art of Lilija Dinere and her son Roberts Diners arouses emotion in all who view it, but especially so in those who are educated in cultural history – those who recognize the symbols and the references. Each work of art is rich with stories, ancient myths which connect us powerfully to our own time."
The cover design is based on Lilija Dinere’s graphic print "The Great Inhabitant" II
Roberts Diners "Armadillo". 2015. Bronze, shell, inlay - horn. 5 × 3,5 × 7,8 cm
