Interview: Gunilla Tuvin
Luca Curci
talks with Gunilla Tuvin during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2021 – 9TH EDITION, at Misericordia Archives.

Painting is a need. I have used painting since I was young and over time have tried to find my own way of expressing myself. I have gone from oil to watercolor, mostly by chance because the oil painting was harder to bring on trips. Now I use both watercolor and acrylic/oil and find it challenging to practice all disciplines. I get the most inspiration from nature, the one around us that can enchant in different ways at different seasons and different times of the day. By the sea, by the mountains, by the open landscape…both what is close and further away. But even the city can be beautiful in different lights and at different times. Capturing a mood and trying to simplify and capture denominations has become my challenge. Similarly, to strive for contrasts and denominations. Recently, I have also explored abstract painting. Something that feels like a natural development”.

LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
GUNILLA TUVIN
– For me, art is a need, something very important in my life, as important as literature, fresh air and nature.

LC – What are you currently working on?
GT
– I work with paintings in different styles, for example, I want to develop my abstract painting where you have no models but more have to rely on composition and forms.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
GT
– I think art has a role in society in different ways. Borth as pure pleasure but also a way for us humans to think beyond the obvious. Art can break barriers and provide new angles. Contemporary art is a continuation of former classical art by illuminating phenomena in the time one lives in.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
GT
– I find inspiration in nature, in the city, by looking around. You can see art in every human being, there is art everywhere. The challenge is to find a form to express it on an artistic level.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
GT
– As I said, to express what you see on an artistic level. To make it their own and make it interesting.

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?
GT
– The paintings were not created for an exhibition, I paint what I feel I want to test on paper and then it becomes my focus.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
GT
– I like the vision about common arenas for art and to make it accessible to those who create art and those who want to look at art.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
GT
– I hope so, it’s an opportunity to reach out with its creation.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
GT
– So far I think it feels good even though I have not been able to visit you in Venice.
