L. C. – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in VENICE INTERNATIONAL EXPERIMENTAL | OUT OF BORDERS? How is it connected to the theme of the event?
D. M. – Picking up pieces, giving them color, form and let them wave in and out of borders. Broken and fragile, they are swinging from fitting in the caging safety and the perspicuity of a border and getting out to a calm oblivion and deconstruction.

 

L. C. – What is your creative process like?
D. M. – A mixture of observation and feel and stuffiness and expansion.

L. C. – Did you style change over the years? How?
D. M. – Needs and feeds changed. Steps between shadows, perspectives, layers, residues, reflections, holes and boxes was movement, evolution and destruction.

 

L. C. – What role does the artist have in society? And the art?
D. M. – Traveling minds . Making important to mark conscious steps.

L. C. – Do you think It’s LIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
D. M. – As artists are experimental palpate tomorrow, they need sufficient conditions for the set up of the communication stage and I think thats what “Its LIQUID” does.

 

L. C. – Would you suggest cooperating with us? What do you think about our services?
D. M. – I didn’t felt pushed or pressured in this cooperation, I had the space I need, I felt respected. I respect that.
