Interview: Guylaine Tremblay

Luca Curci talks with Guylaine Tremblay during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2019 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

Guylaine Tremblay is a self-taught Quebec painter: she favours an intuitive and emotional creation technique through an impassioned abandonment. Through the thrusts of her impulses, vibrant works are born at the steady pace of her brushes. She has successfully explored different techniques such as acrylic, ink, oils, lacquers, spatulas and brushes. She more particularly utilizes an acrylic paint layering technique in a contemporary style which works are signed under her artist pseudonym: Fay.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Guylaine Tremblay – I am presently working on abstract paintings for my next exhibition to be held in New York in April 2019.

LC – What is art for you?
GT – I describe Art as being the heart of felt emotions and it’s intuition, each creating leading to the depths of a dialogue between the soul, the gestures while allowing imagination.

LC – Do visitor’s suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
GT – Absolutely, visitors suggestions really stimulate me, I enjoy seeing through their eyes the perception of my creation.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
GT – The fear of being in front of a canvas and nothing happening. To be standing there with a blank space with no inspiration. This has rarely happened to me but on those occasions, I just put everything aside and came back the next day.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
GT – I literally fell in love with the title of the festival, it really resonated with me “The body language” because I don’t only paint with my soul but with my whole body.

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?
GT – My painting was created in January 2019, it is the first of my new collection.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
GT – It is a beautiful innovative platform in the flavor of the day which highlights the artists .

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
GT – The team is amazing, really professional and cordial, attuned to the artists.

Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann

Art | January 2, 2020

The double exhibition Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann brings together two artistic positions that deal specifically with pictorial and linguistic topics and question how meanings are created. The exhibition in the Maschinenhaus M2 at the KINDL - Centre for Contemporary Art brings selected series of the two artists’ works into a dialogical context. In her conceptual photographs, Natalie Czech develops new meanings in the aesthetic interweaving of different levels of text and image. The artist examines the interaction between linguistic and visual information and uncovers poetic potential. In the series Poems by Repetition (since 2017), Czech doubles or multiplies photographed objects and rearranges them, in some cases divided into individual segments. By repeating relevant parts of sentences and words, highlighting them in colour, or covering unimportant elements, she reveals minimalist poems-for example, in the lyrics of Beatles songs.
