Luca Curci – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
Anna Włoczek –
I’ve been painting since I remember. After high school I studied Fine Arts in Cracow and also Bellas Artes in Valencia. But artistic practice is not only what you have learned. I believe being an artist is a full time job. All the time the mind records moments and filters some pieces that build your inner sensibility. Your art is the result of the way you think, what you see and how you experience emotions.

LC – What are your thoughts while you paint? Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
AW –
Abstract art which I practice needs the space. By that I mean a workplace but also the space in your head. It’s good to be focused, not distracted. I need good music and daylight. The rest is just working and waiting for the perfect moment to come.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
AW –
It’s not a subject I’m interested in. In art I’m looking for an area that leaves something for the viewer’s imagination. I like to compare abstract art to jazz music. It’s your emotions whether you have or not with this kind of art.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
AW –
It’s a totally instinctive process.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
AW –
I feel relieved! But I need more time to say if I’m really content with my work or not.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
AW –
The geometric abstract painting which is presented in the exhibition is a work from an art residence in Greece. The challenge was to show the spirit of the place in an abstract way. The simple greek crosses you can see are the dominant landscape connected with delicate shapes of the domes of orthodox churches.
