Interview: Eva Brutmann
Luca Curci talks with Eva Brutmann during the 15th Edition of VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2022, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

“I’m Eva Brutmann, born October 1975 in Salzburg, Austria. In my daily life I work as a journalist for television and radio (ORF Salzburg) – I love people and I love their stories. In my little studio in the vineyards of South Styria I change camera and microphone with colors and brush. Creative work in this area fascinates me – inspiring nature, friendly people, the smooth light, mediterranean climate, … In my art I try to combine strong colors (I love oil) with natural tones of the local vineyards. And, not only that I travel between art and journalism, I am also a passionate traveller around the world. I love to capture special moments and faces filled with life experience – what an inspiration! Touch, inspire and create smiling faces with my art makes me happy – come with me on this journey!”
“Art is an endless journey, I love every step – explore, dream, discover!”

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Eva Brumann – Art for me is my parallel universe… I dive in every day and I stay focused on something, I normally just recognize. Looking at faces, expressions, emotions in that special way… LOVE IT!

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
EB – I love interacting with people, I am an open minded person. People, their emotions, their feelings influence me and my art work. I want to show all of this – also what lies underneath the surface. Everybody has a hidden side – and a tiny bit of this secret I try to express with my artwork.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
EB – Artist as well as contemporary art are kind of a mirror. They show what excites us, what evoke the biggest emotions, art can be critical, art often is uncomfortable – and art gives us the opportunity to express ourselves, where words come to an end.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
EB – Everywhere. As an artist you develop this special look… on everything. When I walk with my dog, while drinking a good glass of wine with friends, feel thankful during walking through our vineyards… there are so many moments I want to capture with my art.

LC – How do your choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
EB – I draw what touches me: a face that tells a story, an intimate moment to keep forever, the wonders of nature. You can’t express with words – so let the colors talk! But I also love to share messages with my artwork – look at a drawing and talk about it, try to find answers, dive in the composition and stay there for some minutes – that’s it.

EB – I just love it – the concept, the location… Venice IS and always WILL BE inspiring for artists!

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
EB – No doubt, this is a real good chance for artists all over the world to show their artwork in a palazzo in Venice. Believe me, that is a unique feeling for a rookie like me!

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
EB – My pleasure! The whole ITSLIQUID-GANG is just great! Organizing with so many different artists – WOW!!!

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us?
EB – Easy answer… YES, DEFINITELY, you won’t regret it! I tell you: strolling through Palazzo Albrizzi and finding my art hanging on the walls – a moment I will never forget!
