Interview: Eliza Tatulescu
Luca Curci talks with Eliza Tatulescu during CONSCIOUSNESS, second appointment of the ANIMA MUNDI 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.
I am Eliza Tatulescu. I currently live and breathe in Belgium. I studied in an art high school and then interior architecture at the most prestigious university in Romania. I have always had a connection with art and I have recently opened my own small art gallery. I decided to follow my dreams in spite of everything and everybody. My life experiences have been varied and …not boring – and these are the sources of inspiration in my work. I have had a previous exhibition in Romania, my work is partially exhibited in my gallery and I just started participating in international artistic events. I am just beginning.
Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Eliza Tatulescu – First of all, I am always working on something. I have recently opened a small art gallery with exhibitions from my own work but also other artists. I usually have around 3 works that I am busy with at the same time. Right now I have 4.
LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
ET – I have studied in an art high school, then interior architecture and then always a little art next to architecture. Everyday life is a constant experience to learn and get inspiration from.
LC – Which subject are you working on?
ET – I am very interested in connections – between people, between moments, between things, synchronicities etc. I am fascinated by it and I think I will never stop being so.
LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
ET – Sometimes. When people have certain life experiences and find a connection with one of the works, it’s always interesting to hear comments, impressions and reasons for being especially attracted to one of the subjects of my works.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
ET – Yes, absolutely. As did i. Things evolve, you experience different things, you grow and so does your art. I am much more focused on what my work sends out now and how easy that message is sent.I am trying to get to the essence of things. Let go of what is unnecessary.
LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
ET – Connection. In all shapes and sizes.
LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the exhibition or as a part of preexisting works?
ET – The work exhibited via Itsliquid is about the connection between a person and the universe. “Oneness” is about finding yourself one with all, after you have let go of yourself first. It was created before finding the exhibition in Venice.
LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
ET – I loved the theme – that was the main reason I applied for participation. Consciousness is a subject that definitely needs more attention from artists. I am happy to have had this experience.
LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
ET – Of course. I thought it was very attentive toward the artists. My questions and inquiries were always promptly addressed and in a professional manner. The location and timing were also carefully chosen and I was happy to see the selected works from artists all over the world for this event.
LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID platform?
ET – When I read the description on the website – the words “fluidity”, “connection”, and “accessibility” immediately caught my attention. When you have a platform designed to “make things easy” – for the benefit of new artists and art in general, everybody has something to win.
LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
ET – I think it is in a growing stage. It is professional and well organised and it provides opportunities for new artists. I also valued its transparency. I think it has a big potential for future growth. I have also discussed with artists previously exhibited via Itsliquid and they also had a good experience. It was a great opportunity for me and I am happy to have participated.
