Interview: Angela Simon Casanova
Luca Curci talks with Angela Simon Casanova during VISIONS, third appointment of CANVAS ART FAIR 2023, held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

“I am Ángela S. Casanova (Murcia, 1989). Artistic painter and doctor in Fine Arts. I have had solo and group exhibitions and I have been part of an artistic relocation group in Finland. I believe that art is the greatest form of expression, and the most diverse. Its greatest appeal is how subjective it can be. For me, painting is the best medium I have to show a thought, an idea or even a reality. I like to get out of my comfort zone and not get stuck in one style. I like to try new things, new materials and new media. It’s important to challenge yourself in a profession like this, it’s the best way to open your mind. I love filling spaces and making a house more like a home.”

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Angela Simon Casanova –
I think art is the greatest form of expression. And the most diverse. One of its greatest attractions, I think, is undoubtedly how subjective it can be. It is a means to show a thought, an idea or even a reality. And the best thing about art itself is the great variety of media in which it can manifest itself. In my case, art is sometimes a need for release, a way of capturing on canvas everything I have in my head, a way of bringing those thoughts to light, but with the peace of mind of knowing that these thoughts are known only to the work itself and to me. At other times, art can become for me an aesthetic idea, a colour or a mixture of colours, and even an unknown.

LC – What are you currently working on?
ASC –
For some time now I have been trying to get out of my comfort zone and not get stuck in one style. I like the idea of trying new things, new materials and new media. I think it’s important to challenge yourself in a profession like this, it’s the best way to open your mind. Despite what is often said, not everything is created yet, and it is always possible that a mismatch in your usual way of expressing yourself in art can lead you to something incredible that you didn’t expect.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
ASC –
I love to travel and see new places which leads me to think about future painting projects. But like any job, there are times when there is no inspiration and you still have to go on. As we know, it’s not a hobby, it’s a job.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
ASC –
When creating a Pictorial Reality, the most exciting thing for me is to think about the finished work and people’s reactions to it.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
ASC – I
have moved between realism, abstract art, conceptual, figurative image, and colour fields. My style has changed over the years. I move between Pictorial Reality (scenography) and oil on canvas (medium/large format).

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
ASC –
I very much agree with ITSLIQUID’s vision of art and this exhibition. It is important that society and art merge to try to make the differences that exist in the world today disappear. I believe that art is the best way to achieve this.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
ASC –
Pictorial Reality is about making the three-dimensional two-dimensional through painting. “Romeo + Juliet”, the work presented, represents a scene from the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet, showing the last scene in which they see each other together before they die. The lovers wake up little by little and caress each other to finally drift away from each other through the sheets. All the scenery has been painted by hand, and each piece of furniture is real, which makes the play more authentic.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
ASC –
Of course. It is an opportunity to meet new artists and to open doors for the future. I want to thank ITSLIQUID for allowing me to be part of something so big.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
ASC –
Of course I do. The facility you give to the artist and the future possibilities you offer are to be welcomed. You are always on the move, and varying by touching on different artistic fields, which opens up a wider range of possibilities.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
ASC –
I think the organisation has been perfect so that each spectator can feel each work from the very first moment.
