Luca Curci talks with artist Julia Dubovyk during RITUALS of ANIMA MUNDI festival in Venice 2017.

Julia developed an interest in art at the early age of 13. Her insatiable curiosity led her to explore other modes of creative self-expression as she pursued her art studies in painting, design and glassworks throughout the major art capitals and prominent learning institutions of Europe. Her travels and living experiences in Spain, France and Italy, as well as her upbringing in the Ukraine, continue to be a rich source of inspiration in her work. Julia currently lives and works in New York City and she is a member of “The American Watercolor Society” and “National Association of Women artists”.

Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of RITUALS – ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL?

Julia Dubovyk – The main idea of my artwork is Chandelier, the Light that we can control ourselves. Very simple subject but mysterious at the same time.

L. C. – What do you think about the concept of this event? In which way did inspire you?

J. D. – I really like the concept of this event. I met some talented artists and art lovers there. It is always very important for the artist to have this exchange of thoughts and ideas.

L. C. – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

J. D. – Yes. The Chandelier is the main subject of my paintings as light is the most powerful thing in Nature. The crystals with its ability to reflect and refract light create a magical atmosphere. In addition, everything in its proximity becomes bright, enjoyable, and festive. I am drawn to this unique light and to the idea that we can control it ourselves. Internally we all possess a source of light and as with Chandeliers we can turn it on or off.

L. C. – Did your style change over the years? How?

J. D. – Yes. I always like to try new styles and techniques. First years of my career I was painting in realistic style, then abstract, now I’m discovering chandeliers and everything related to the light.

L. C. – What are your artistic projects for the future? Is there any possibilities for a new participation in some Italian exhibitions?

J. D. – I’m painting at studio these days, creating my new series of paintings and planning to participate in some exhibitions in New York this Fall, I hope in Italy as well.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
