Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Ariel Palanzone –
I think that art is the manifestation of our most intimate and human feelings and concerns.

LC – What are you currently working on?
AP –
I currently work as a multidisciplinary designer for clients from different parts of the world, especially in the U.S.A.. I will also be at the BADA Art Fair, which will take place from August 25 to 28 in Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I’m excited about it. I also have other personal projects linked to the design and development of objects and furniture of my own authorship.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
AP –
I agree with the definition of Van Gogh about the purpose of art. He said that the usefulness of art is “to comfort those who are broken by life.” I think that phrase perfectly sums up the function of contemporary art, since art has the ability to reach the soul of people and beautify our lives, making us better people and giving us other visions of the world.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
AP –
My artistic approaches are very varied. Sometimes the works have a conceptual and existentialist message, other times they are rather surreal and others are simply compositional studies of abstract shapes and colours. My style is quite eclectic and unclassifiable. I like to think of my art as the work of an alchemist, based on constant experimentation and a combination of different elements.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
AP –
Absolutely. My first artworks were more oriented towards the surrealist style, then I was doing more minimalist works and lately, my inclination is towards organic and geometric abstraction.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
AP –
I feel great emotion and pride for the effort behind it and am also curious to see what the interaction of this work with people will be like. I attach great importance to the process, and I think that the process is already the result. That is why I never consider an artwork completely finished, but I usually go back to them after a while to try to improve it and see it from another point of view.
