Interview: Annette Werndl
Luca Curci
talks with Annette Werndl during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Strength, power and image are the first words that come to mind when you think of Annette Werndl’s paintings. They are often large and give presence to the room where they hang. Her colors are mostly cool and the line or edge are always present. Her newest paintings are often landscapes and give pleasure to the eye. The painterliness gives tension to the surface and the images always give you a sense of depth. The color is transcendent because it demands of us a reaction. And when that is clearly articulated, we come closer to understand ourselves. Both, the completed image and paint handling of Annette Werndl’s work, give it a dynamic that demands the attention of the viewer. Her paintings are very expressive and sometimes refers to nature. The work is powerful and vulnerable at the same time. This attitude to painting is making a comeback in Germany and she is making a contribution to this visual tradition.

LC – What is your creative process like?
AW –
I usually work in series and vary the color.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
AW –
The special and always underlying theme of my work is color space and composition.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
AW –
Nowadays, especially during the Corona pandemic, it is not easy to be an artist. But every kind of crisis offers infinite possibilities for reflection and contemplation. A crisis can show how important spiritual values are for the maintenance of health and well being of the society.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
AW –
The topic “Borders” especially appeals to me at this time! Corona poses enormous challenges to our society and gives the theme of “Borders” a new meaning, both for the individual and for all of humanity.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
AW –
I have been working for a long time with abstract newly interpreted landscape paintings. The subject “Future Landscapes” has a lot to do with my visual language.
