Interview: Alena Shaburdina
Luca Curci
talks with Alena Shaburdina during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2022, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

My name is Alena Shaburdina, I’m a professional artist from Moscow, Russia, and I can’t imagine my life without art. Studying at several art schools and studios with professional masters, my perseverance and desire helped me to form my personal style. Currently, I am undergoing a professional retraining program at the Academy named after Stroganov which is one of the best art academies in my country. My artworks are found in private collections around the world (UK, USA, EU, Russia), I am a member of the International Art Foundation, member of the professional Union of Artists of Russia, and take part in international and Russian exhibitions. My works take prizes in the following categories: Modernism, Figurativism, Spiritual Art, Portrait Art, Emotions. Japanese, Italian, Russian literature, nature, painting, and fashion – that’s what inspires and encourages me to create more and more stylish and deep artworks. I’m a hard-working artist, painting emotions, feelings, and experiences that’s why my artworks are so memorable and people appreciate them. I often choose a theme and make a whole series of paintings that most fully and comprehensively reveal it. The main statement is – Deep artworks for deep people.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Alena Shaburdina –
Art for me is an opportunity to live and convey the vivid emotions that fill our lives. Art is the strongest energy that can influence both the perception of our world and our attitude to it.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
AS –
Yes, since I almost never go into abstraction, my works are filled with concrete meaning and written on a specific topic – mainly emotions, relationships between people, issues of femininity and sexuality, freedom and self-search.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
AS –
The main part of my works reflects the state and mood of a woman, both alone and surrounded by a loved one, children, nature, interiors. For me, the process of searching for the true purpose and meaning of existence is important, often this process resonates on my canvases.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
AS –
Getting a response to your work is almost always extremely useful – because that’s how you see how another person perceives your work – what he finds in it, whether it responds to him, what feelings it causes. That’s how you begin to understand whether you managed to convey your idea to the viewer or not.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
AS –
The search for oneself, the disclosure of one’s emotions, one’s destiny, the search for inner support. I recently completed a series of works on religious topics, which also helped me to better understand my attitude to this issue. So my favorite object is a person and all its components – moral, spiritual, and physical.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
AS –
In my opinion, my works presented at the exhibition reveal the theme of the exhibition as much as possible – it is through the figurative image of the human body that emotions, feelings and content are revealed.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
AS –
Since my work is permeated with love for images of a person, human emotions and the soul, the concept of the exhibition strongly resonated with me, being close and familiar from my own reflections and experiences.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
AS –
Definitely yes. Even participation in the exhibition held in Venice, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, I consider it already a definite opportunity for the artist to be presented to an international audience not only online but also offline.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
AS –
A team of professionals who love their work and give their strength and time to promote contemporary art.
