Interview: Anne Felicie Nickels
Luca Curci talks with Anne Felicie Nickels during ALCHEMIC BODY at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

Autodidact artist active in Sweden since 2016. Prime technique is fused glass but also works with graphic art and oil painting. “When I was growing up I dreamed about being a scientist. Exploring and learning, always been and still is, an engine for me. I love the beauty in glass and the technical challenges it gives me. My art speaks about it all and through my art, I wish to share the story of ancient culture and the greatness of nature we live in today” – Anne Felicie Nickels.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
AFN – Ancient art and mother nature. Also, the curiosity and learning about the media I’m working with is a great engine for me.

LC – What is your creative process like?
AFN – I improvise a lot. All of my designs started as a random puzzle put together by leftover pieces of glass. Some patterns have developed into templets. I experiment with colors and different effects, leading to new ideas depending on the results. It is a lot about seeing the potentials and overcoming the limitations of the glass fusing technique.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
AFN – Eye contact and awareness of the soul behind.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
AFN – The three artworks I have shown are part of a series I call Naïve. They associate with art, rituals and culture of our ancestors. We should learn from our past and never forget we are only a small part of the universe. I think my art fit the theme very well since FIRE. AIR. WATER. EARTH, always were at the center of all ancient people.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
AFN – The artworks are from an earlier production made for an art event taking place every Easter in my region.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
AFN – Absolutely! As an artist, you are grateful for every opportunity to reach out to the audience. Without organisations like yours, it would be very hard for me to exhibit my artwork.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
AFN – It’s been a pleasure and I’m very happy with the attention you have given me.
