Interview: Annette Lang
Luca Curci talks with Annette Lang during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2021 – 9th Edition, and VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2021 at Misericordia Archives.
“The colors seduce me while the stories are told. In a quiet or energetic way. In the happiest moments, the painting creates itself. Like a puff of supernatural beauty, adventure opens its many paths.”
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Annette Lang – My life as an artist is like a circle of impression in the world, music people nature buildings life, all of this becomes an expression, my expression. I am often enthusiastic by life and wish to return this joy again. My father showed me the joy of creativity we created together animals made of clay and candles and painted some pictures paint home photos with materials.
LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
AL – I’ve kept the child’s joy and curiosity, which is a great driving force when I paint, as I do with joy. Danish artist A. Lang with own gallery in the old part of Copenhagen. My images are created with fantasy, joy and play-fullness. Love to bring stories to life. I work on my intuition or my stored memory, from moments and memories made in joy and play. My pictures are built up with many layers, work with contrasts that I think give the work character. Important to me is the depth.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
AL – I had in the ’80s gallery with an editor who did a short and art magazine on Westerbro in Copenhagen. How famous writers were held. When we held exhibitions, there were other artists who put music and theatre and wrote poetry inspired by my works of art. . I also worked with theaters, created masks and made scenography for performances i have restored the new theater in Copenhagen, found the old thing out of gibs and gold ceilings and redecorated it And made pillars of mamorrhages. I’ve been trained at Copenhagen art school back in 1987 and had Roger Prince as a private teacher.
LC – What is your creative process like?
AL – I’m happy when I see other people are happy to look at my paintings when they start telling their own stories and memories.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
AL – The hardest thing about painting for me is if my brain takes over works best from colors and my intuition. This gives the most living result.
LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
AL – I brought two styles of figurative buildings and people and a style of nature abstraction. That figurative came first and then the abstract and today I work with both styles in one.
LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
AL – I am very pleased to work with the ITSLIQUID GROUP.
