Interview: Inbal Kristin
Luca Curci talks with Inbal Kristin during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.
“I am a graphic designer, born in Israel (1980). Photography is my hobby. Photography is a very important part of my life. I received my Diploma in Media Design from the Ashkelon Academy and I have participated in several photography courses. My work technique combines photography and digital editing. Sometimes my works look like a painting. I especially like to take nature and landscape photos. I have always loved art. As Ansel Adams said: “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer”. Since I can remember, photography was a vocation for me, a way to express myself and to evoke my viewer’s emotion. I participated in several international events and exhibitions in Italy, Greece, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Hungary, Scotland, France and Israel. I currently live in Ashkelon, Israel“.
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Inbal Kristin – For me art is arranging elements such as colors and shapes in a way that appeals to my senses or emotions. Photography is a way to capture great moments, images that I see through my eyes. I think there is a magic everywhere, we just need to pay attention carefully and observe the reality around us.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
IK – It is always a challenge to create something new and interesting.
LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition?
IK – The “Passion Tree” image represents the feeling of intense enthusiasm and desire in life. Passion can be in many areas such as: love, health, work, learning and growing. Sometimes passion is boundless. No one can tell us what is our passion, we can only define it for ourselves. The other work I presented is “Horizon” – the line at the farthest place that you can see, where the sky seems to touch the sea. Where is the exact border? No one can say exactly… each one of us has his own perspective. When looking at the photograph there is a sense of infinity, calm and serenity.
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?
IK – The artworks presented were part of a preexisting work.
LC – What is your creative process like?
IK – Usually I go out and take images of things I see and attract my eyes. Next stage is the editing in my computer. This is the stage in which I put a personal touch, the uniqueness to my work.
LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP? Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
IK – I really enjoy cooperating with you. All the staff and management are very kind and organized.
