Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of RITUALS – ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL?
Christine Heitler – The painting is called Oyster. In my mind everything on earth comes from water and is connected to the sea. All life goes back to the water, and I expressed these thoughts by paianting a small animal which lives in the sea.

L. C. – What do you think about the concept of this event? In which way did inspire you?
C. H. – I think the exhibition in three parts gives space to the artists to show their work to a great audience. The main reason for me was the location in Venice. The atmosphere of Venice and the vicinity to the lagune is breathtaking.

L. C. –  Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
C. H. – My artworks are focused on several themes. Sometimes I express my ideas through the informal, other paintings are connected to nature, volcanoes, landscapes .

L. C. –  Did you style change over the years? How?
C. H. – From the beginning I used colours mixed with sand or wood dust to achieve strong structure. My style has changed over the years as through the learned use of color I can express my most intimate thoughts.

L. C. – Which are your artistic projects for the future? Is there any possibilities for a new participation in some Italian exhibitions?
C. H. – I have already participated in several Italian exhibitons, I can imagine yes in the future.
