Interview: Iris Sun Art

Luca Curci talks with Iris Sun Art during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2018 and THE BODY LANGUAGE 2019 at Misericordia Archives.

IRIS has an inexhaustible supply of inspiration, an artist apart, Iris Sun divides her time between SW England and Greece, spending countless hours absorbed in her passion which is painting. The genuine, emotive, sheer artistic force of Iris Sun’s work emerges again and again in a unique, unparalleled way! The latest art exhibitions are in London, Los Angeles-California, Venice and Athens. Her artworks have been exhibited in Herrick Gallery, Anemoi Art Gallery, Brick Lane Gallery, Kensington Town Hall, Chelsea Town Hall in London. At Misericordia Archives in Venice, in Foshay Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles-California and Contemporary Space Athens. Moreover, her artworks have been displayed as billboard posters in Hyde Park & Regent’s Park Tube Station in London and at Grand Union Station in Los Angeles-California. Precisely because her artworks are addressed to us and “talk” to us, let us listen, as this outstanding artist does, to the messages of her very own space-time, and let us experience that fuzzy warm feeling in our souls

Luca Curci – Where do you find your inspiration?
Iris Sun Art – I find my inspiration from: my feelings and nature, any feeling becomes an icon in my mind so it is very easy for me to depict it on canvas.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
ISA – The LIFE is enough experience for me. I draw since I was 5 years old and this is the way of my life it is in my daily routine and very vital for me.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
ISA – Yes, my style changes always and doesn’t need years to change when I get bored I change easily. I don’t have a standard style my style comes from my instinct and that changes automatically.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
ISA – The Art Theme that I am focused now, this period, is HUMANS. I don’t have any preferred subject that always depends and changes on my feelings.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
ISA – My artwork “THE NEW AGE-LONELNINESS” gives the message of “HUMAN LONELNINESS”. I want to give the message of the “Big Loneliness” that humans experience nowadays. From my point of view, Loneliness is the IDENTITY of every human in this Age, even though they try to show or pretend not being along and when I speak about Loneliness I always speak about the Loneliness of inside Self, the Loneliness of the Soul.

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?
ISA – This artwork was created in 2014 sensing and feeling that one-day it will find its “place” and it did found its “place” at CONTEMPORARAY VENICE in January 2019.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
ISA – I have participated in many International art shows and after that experience I can easily say that I am fully covered by the whole process of organizing, promoting the event and the artists it was an excellent experience for me.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
ISA – Yes, of course ITSLIQUID GROUP can be an important opportunity for the artists.
