Interview: Ewe Klimik
Luca Curci talks with Ewe Klimik during CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, and during RITUALS, first appointment of ANIMA MUNDI, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.
Ewe was born in 1993 in Olsztyn in Poland. Currently, she combines work and life in her hometown of Szczytno with travels around Italy. She spent the last year in Vienna. During that time, she developed her newly known digital painting technique and searched for a way to find peace in the surreal world of art and fresh visions in design. With her work, she invites the viewer to establish a connection based on a sense of security, wrapping the soul in a thirst for tenderness. It gives a chance to notice the subtle combination of story and colors. To have given lose oneself in another reality for a while.
Luca Curci – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
Ewe Klimik – The artistic journey that I got brought a lot of amazing experiences to my life. During my studies, I always tried to work on my professional development. I often participated in events related to the organization of exhibitions and practised various fields of art that fascinated me. A big impact on my creative output has also been the opportunity to work with many wonderful people related to art, design, craftsmanship, and more. Thanks to that, the effect of newer works began to become a consideration not only of talent but also the value of life’s lessons, my weaknesses, my passion for other fields of art, and hard work. Even though the process of searching for creative language was not so easy, I feel cheerful about what I have achieved.
LC – How important is the editing process in your work? How’s yours?
EK – The editing process plays an important part in my life, but not as important as it used to be. In the past, I was able to work on refining the details of the current work endlessly. Therefore, for me is super important to be able to say stop at some point. What I have created is good enough.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
EK – The most challenging part of my work is in the mid-phase of creation. Often there comes this time that brings many new and subsequent tests. However, thanks to determination and faith in the value of the work, this difficult feeling quickly passes.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
EK – An attempt to positively distract from negative times in the world has always been relevant to my work. I’ve tried to improve values in my art in an even more conscious way. Over the years, my style has grown more mature, more sensual, and full of tenderness towards female strength.
LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
EK – During choosing the subject of work, I like to follow what my intuition tells me. Each job has a different story behind it. Sometimes is a result of work that just relates to my feelings about a situation, and sometimes is an inspiration given by my chosen character.
LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
EK – The selected works I presented at our exhibition were the ones closest to my heart. I intended to show my artworks full of peace that is so priceless nowadays. Therefore, those paintings illustrated what I’ve wanted to share with our audience in the best way. Each of them tells a different story about ideas and transformations in the human subconscious in its way, which I will gladly leave for the viewer’s interpretation.
LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
EK – I think that the openness and flexibility of the organization of your event are motivating further artistic activities.
