LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
AGC – Religious art is what I currently enjoy creating and is a subject that motivates me to paint

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
AGC – It’s a opportunity to showcase the artist artwork internationally. Theme The relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities etc… the theme has creative characteristics about it, however it could be simplified.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
AGC – The title of the art presented is “Come and Partake”. In the painting there is a container with water and another item with food. We need both food and water to sustain the body, but in this artwork it’s depicting spiritual food. The living water & bread that Christ provides for us. The connection of the artwork and space, concludes that their is something more than what the eye perceives.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event? Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
AGC – The service gives artist opportunities to showcase their artwork. Yes, it would be nice to do a collaboration.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
AGC – As mentioned previously, with another suggestion of having someone on your team that does sales marketing; for the artwork displayed at the art fair. The person in sales marketing can help sell the artwork for the artists. Another opportunity or service that your company could do is work with galleries that after the art fair artwork that doesn’t sell you could have the art displayed at a gallery in Rome, Venice or London for a much longer term. This would give the artist more recognition and more opportunity to show and sell their artwork.
