Interview: Dorina Oriana Randisi
Luca Curci talks with Dorina Oriana Randisi during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Dorina Oriana Randisi, alias Oria, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bari in painting, lives and works between Rome and Avezzano. Art and Image teacher in middle school artistically ranges from painting to ceramics, from mosaic to sculpture. His work has always revolved around the sign, an internal and strong sign that sometimes represents emotions and sensations, sometimes intimate images of seascapes that are transformed into surfaces of light.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Dorina Oriana Randisi – For me, art is both the space in which I feel most alive and an instrument through which I express sensations and moods.

LC – What are you currently working on?
DOR – my project is to involve the viewer more. To achieve this goal, I recently started working on larger panels (120×180 cm) that communicate in a more profound way the sensations I try to evoke through my work.

LC – Among the several techniques you use, which one do you prefer to practice and which of them are most compelling for you?
DOR – Although my favorite techniques have always been of the plastic-type such as clay sculpture, mosaic and papiermâché, in recent years my attention has focused on the gold leaf gilding technique with which I can recreate the ideal spaces which impress the vibes of the moment.

LC – What do you think about art on social media? Are they turning into the new showcases of contemporary art?
DOR – I think that social media have and will have an increasingly important role in creating connections between the artist and the viewer of the work, although the three-dimensionality and the strength of the material and all the sensory perceptions that a live work unleashes struggle to arrive in their integrity and they will always require a direct exchange between the work and the spectator.

LC – What issues do you intend to deal with in the future?
DOR – The themes on which I will focus my next work are a continuation of what I have already started in the previous months: an exploration and a reinterpretation of the landscapes of the soul through the creation of ethereal and timeless surfaces in which to make the viewer get lost.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
DOR – Future landscapes were immediately a source of harmony and a stimulus for my personal and artistic research.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
DOR – In the works I presented, the themes that inspired me are expressed through water that designs liquid and changing landscapes in Acqua dolce and Bassa marea, liquidity that disorients us and undermines only apparent certainties. Precariousness that leads us to wait forever in the Midnight Sun.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
DOR – It’s Liquid undoubtedly represents an important opportunity for an artist both for the showcase it offers and for the interaction it creates between artists and spectators of other experiences and nationalities.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
DOR – Yes and I hope to have other opportunities for collaboration.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
DOR – I think it’s a good tool to make an artist known and broaden his audience.
