Interview: Alicent Art
Luca Curci
talks with Alicent Art during THE EXTENDED BODY 2020 at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

Since arriving on the art scene in 2013, Italian born, London based Alicent has gradually integrated within the art community. Inspired by her love for nature and her own life experiences, she works with acrylic on canvas, using mainly the palette knife and drip painting techniques. As a professional self-taught artist, Alicent expresses her emotions translating them into vibrant and contrasting colours with consistent texture and striking effects. Alicent has steadily progressed with her artistic journey throughout the past few years, after being selected for the Artexpo in Rome and the New Artist Fair in London, she was also invited to the NY Art Gallery Grand Opening in New York and the Passaggio in Laguna exhibition in Venice. Other more recent events have taken place in Milan, Paris and Rome.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Alicent Art –
Art for me is just a way to express and translate certain feelings and emotions, especially those feelings that sometimes cannot be expressed in words. It’s all about capturing that magic moment and convert it into bold, vibrant colours. Art is an escape from reality, where I can freely express myself without boundaries.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
AA –
Although I come from an artistic family, I have only discovered my hidden talent just over 6 years ago, following some major changes in my personal life. My working career has always been orientated in the financial sector. However, my art is now taking over and the past couple of years have been very hectic but also very rewarding and motivating for me as an artist. I am now aiming to reduce my working hours in order to progress further with my artistic career.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
AA –
Anything can be a source of inspiration really. Sometimes just seeing a good art exhibition can inspire me as well as nature, photography and also personal circumstances and state of mind.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
AA –
The most challenging part I would say is trying to make time in between my full-time job and my art. I also find the commissioned work quite challenging, as I don’t like to be told what to paint, like many other artists I guess.

LC – What are you currently working on?
AA –
I am currently working on a large canvas of 100×120 cm and I also have some other work in progress. I am a very multitasking person and I tend to switch from one painting to another depending on the inspiration I have in that moment.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
AA –
My artwork presented in ‘The Extended Body’ exhibition can be interpreted as an extension. Movement and space outside the body in an abstract conceptual way.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
AA –
My artworks are focused on an abstract theme of vibrant, bold colours, which want to transmit positivity and a feeling of joy and spiritual well-being to the viewer. Eclipse for example, was inspired by the electric atmosphere I felt during the solar eclipse. The strong contrast of brightness and darkness put together on this painting represents the dark and bright moments we all experience in our lives. The positive message here is that there will always be light beyond darkness.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
AA –
It is a good platform quite inspiring and appealing. It offers good exposure and excellent opportunity for artists to make themselves known at an international level.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
AA –
Yes, I would definitely recommend your platform to any other fellow artists.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
AA –
Yes, it offers a good exposure and good opportunities.
