Interview: Greta Schnall
Luca Curci talks with Greta Schnall during BARCELONA CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR 2021 – 1st EDITION, held in Barcelona, at Valid World Hall Gallery.

My main focus is photography with extreme digital editing processing. This means that I am creating pictures and graphics from architectural, natural and abstract subjects with often surreal components. My favourite themes are front facades of modern buildings or parts of them, which I’m digitally editing and finally changing it into an abstract digital creation. Above all I want to show how the simple, often depressing architecture on photos can be changed with image editing in an imaginative and exciting way. So one should come from the functional to the pure fantasy motive, through which one can be inspired variously.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Greta Schnall – I am currently trying my hand at architectural abstractions that are visually in a certain movement in the picture.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
GS – I work self-taught. I have been fascinated by the skyscrapers and skylines of the world’s metropolises for a long time. And my preference for modern architecture, cubism and surrealism gives rise to my works in their own way.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
GS – Yes, my works mainly show modern-architectural motifs with abstract, cubistic and/or surreal components.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
GS – I find every constructive comment enriching, as it reflects the viewer’s opinion and often shows new perspectives. I want to develop myself further, attract attention and please with my art.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
GS – Yes, I moved from nature macros and landscape depictions to architectural motifs, which increasingly developed into abstract, cubist-tinted and / or surreal motifs.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
GS – “Orange Windows” is part of existing work. But I carefully selected it for the festival. It is one of my most popular works.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
GS – My idea is always to transform simple, often depressing buildings into fantasy buildings that inspire. And the motif of this artwork is modern architecture that can be aesthetically adapted to its surroundings.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
GS – I’ve been working with Itsliquid Group for several years. I always felt and still feel well informed, advised and in good hands. The compliance with the Itsliquid Group makes me feel good.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
GS – In any case. Itsliquid Group offers a wide range of exhibitions and other events. This creates a diverse personal and virtual presence for the artists.
