Interview: Jill Bouaziz
Luca Curci
talks with Jill Bouaziz during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2020 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

I was born 1 August in 1980. I grew up in an environment where Art has a place and we look at the world with eyes full of curiosity about what “is and surrounds us”. I was influenced from the age of 6 by my father who was an illustrator and figurative painter. I browse countless books on painters in specialized journals, I am interested in their stories, their styles. I am inspired by Fauvist, Impressionist and Cubist painters like Cézanne, Picasso, Mondrian, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Caillebotte, Braque, Chagall, and many others. Self-taught, I study style design and take evening classes in living model drawing. I collaborated in 2004 in a ready-to-wear brand where I make drawings on the theme of Music. Reality annoys me, so I prefer to forget it, so I orient myself in contemporary painting. In 2005, I started my first paintings, including the “Little Prince” and “Bar Code”. In 2009, I designed a book “Lights Pleause”, which is poetic and philosophical with black and white illustrations to accompany each text. I have worked and travelled, met souls and bodies, I listen to the stories of each one. I live in dreams and realities, telling myself that today: “I live only in tubes with plural colors and brushes of various shapes”. I am inspired by encounters, travel, nature also by the 50s, 60s, 70s. I cultivate my imagination in a positive and creative energy. Painting is entering another dimension, escaping, it is inventor a new perspective that lets the imperfect, the color, the light pass. It means being able to enter into communion with oneself even during creation and share something concrete with the world.
