Židrija’s painting provides restrained abstract, sparing with colour plastic. By combining her painting on canvas with image projections, artist broadens possibilities of means of expression she uses. Here Židrija fixates light with different layers of media, opens changes of form and space by conveying the idea of full emptiness. Abstract drawings with ink, carried out with expressionistic gestural movements, overflows in dashing and harmonious compositions, where the importance of movement (also as in artist’s performances) is reflected as a way to transfer the tension to peace’s environment.
Themes of Židrija’s creation may be well illustrated with titles of her solo exhibitions and performances –Solitudes. Touches”, “Untroubled Mind. Meetings”, “Life Consists of These Little Touches of Solitude”, “Free Play of Space”and other.
Židrija travels a lot, takes part in artist in residence programmes, collaborates with other artists, also organizes events (residencies, festivals, exhibitions).
