LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
KLODIN – For me art is magic. Or name it the power of the subconscious.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
K – I am a self taught artist. Starting with 2008 I approached the relationship between text and imagine via mixed media. How did it start? How did start the newest and more profound stage of my works? I have always believed in the strength and power of the subconscious and (re)discovered it at times. The belief that I work with the Universe in order to shape often acquires evidence in my life. From early childhood I have always wanted to be helpful for the animals in need, to be around them because their love is so precious to my heart and I dearly admire their beauty. Actually, my desire was to become a veterinarian, but things turned out a bit different. Today, me and my husband run a small family shelter for abused and abandoned animals. And also today, a new synchronicity has found its place in my existence, since I am now able to work on canvas about and with the animals who arrive in my life. In the fall of 2016, I had a life altering experience. One of our dogs, Caine, paralysed and was about to pass away. There was zero hope for returning. At that time I knew little about animal talk, but wanted to give it a try, since it was our last hope. It has been shown that it has been the best decision possible. Câine has recovered (is walking now with a rolli), became my animal teacher and is today the proud owner of a couple of “abstract portraits”. I started self learning animal talk myself. Thus, I discovered a new way to transcend the borders of the linear communication, inasmuch as the animal talk is immediate. Caine is the Romanian for dog. She came in my life with this name given by others (maybe as a joke) and revealed it to me in a core shamanic way: it was meant to be that she reveals herself as my animal sister and teacher.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
K – I think art can only play a role where education is already in place. I see our society as very little evolved when I turn my eyes to its artificiality and violence. So I would rather say contemporary art might have a powerful role when I see it as the inner growth of an individual.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
K – I enjoy working with references from the occult and shaping reality through magic on canvas; I explore the animal talk/telepathic communication with animals and describe journeys to otherworldly realms; the joy of Nature is always in my inner self; I reach out to the beauty of this different way to perceive life, which has been silenced by society most often. All the time there is a powerful and amazingly beautiful desire to transcend the limitations of our linear language and existence. To get a glimpse of the other/another side.

LC – What is your creative process like?
K – What is needed to “become alive” on canvas comes to me in a way or another. It stays in my heart and mind for a while, more or less. It usually takes me 2 up to 3 sessions, depending on the number of layers used. Afterwards, the canvas continues to work by itself.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
K – They were preexisting works, but absolutely connected with the festival’s theme.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
K – Yes, it was a pleasure. I hope we meet again.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
K – ITSLIQUID GROUP it’s a successful and growing platform. The art shows are professional and well organized. Thank you very much!

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
