Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Denisa Klemscheová – I try to express hope, and faith in a loving God that shows a different path, soothes pain and is a ray of light on the path of light. I use oil paints, actually, I use colours like different shades of purple, pink and white. The main topic I am working on these days is themes like leaving and life change.
LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
DK – I define myself as a self-taught painter, I was particularly influenced by the paintings of Claude Monet and van Gogh. I was very interested in Claude Monet “Woman with an Umbrella” as a child and in adolescence by the work of Vincent van Gogh and his letters. I was also touched by a book about his life by Irving Stone, “Thirst for Life”.
LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
DK – I am happy when some people tell me that they perceive energy from my paintings that someone feels through my painting’s motivation that fascinates them. When they see a light that guides them through the pain on a positive path, carries them out of unhappiness and sadness without downplaying them. It is a satisfaction for me that my work makes sense.
LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
DK – Conditions for painters are difficult at this time, but God can sometimes pleasantly surprise us because he wants to see our smile. So it is more of an adventure.
LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival?
DK – I like the atmosphere and charismatic location of the exhibition connecting to history and God.
LC – In which way did it inspire you?
DK – The concept is very interesting and I would like to cooperate in the future for sure.
LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this
DK – I show the pain and loneliness brought by the time of Coronavirus and in which there is hope that through pain one can walk to God and closer to the light. One knows who the facts really are.
LC – How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
DK – I am a person of my time, a man who lives his life and my art is contemporary, because it expresses my feelings, my view of life and my own experiences, which are true and therefore close to other people in their purity.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
DK – The biggest challenge for me is the ability to transfer the purity of the experience, the power of the motive and its regularity to the canvas. In the form of colours and shapes, so that other people can perceive this intensity and the ability to complete the image to the end
LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
DK – Of course I did. It is one of my favourite galleries I like to cooperate with. We have very similar feelings and senses.
LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for
DK – Yes for sue I think it is a very nice activity and a big opportunity for all artists.
