Interview: Karine Grazia
Luca Curci
talks with Karine Grazia during CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2022, at Palazzo Bembo – Venice Grand Canal, and during RITUALS, first appointment of ANIMA MUNDI 2022, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Karine Grazia (b.1986) is a freelance artist who lives and works in Italy and Estonia. Her parents encouraged her creativity since early childhood, allowing her to draw on the children’s room wallpaper. She built her first easel at the age of eight. In 2011 she graduated from Euroacademy with a degree in interior architecture. Karine paints abstracts with acrylics and draws minimalistic pictures. “I pour abstracts with acrylics and sometimes cover my works with epoxy to add a different effect. I like to be in flow, movement, and development. As a result, you can see different styles in my portfolio. When creating my work, I like to take into account the interior where the order goes. I desire to create an ideal environment, where people would feel good. A painting on the wall can create a completely new feeling in the room. Since I studied interior architecture, this is where it is possible to combine the two parts and I can achieve what I want through art. I like to leave beauty behind and share the harmony with which I can delight my clients and partners”.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Karine Grazia –
Art is an expression of my thoughts, emotions and desires. I like how it evokes different emotions like excitement, disturbance, happiness or sadness also in the audience.

LC – What are you currently working on?
KG –
After a year of mostly practising pouring art, I am currently working on another style of abstract paintings, using brighter tones and different techniques.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artwork?
KG –
Sometimes I want it to be too perfect. If I don’t like the outcome or I am not satisfied with the quality then no one is ever going to see that painting.

LC – How is your creative process?
KG –
When possible, I like to take into account the interior where the painting will live. Then I decide the size, the colours and the balance between the colours. I will have a vision in my head that I will try to recreate on the canvas.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
KG –
Yes, my style is changing, developing and evolving. At the beginning of last year, my paintings were more variegated and colourful, then they became more calm, and pacific in pastel tones. Today I am starting to work again with brighter colours.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
KG –
I read from your homepage that ITSLIQUID is based on fluidity, motion, connection and accessibility, and in my artist statement I wrote a year ago: “I like to be in a flow, movement and development. As a result, you can see different styles in my portfolio”…so I would say that I couldn’t agree more with your vision. You have chosen quite a wide theme so that every artist can find something to relate to and with such a wonderful selection of very different artists that you are exhibiting, it is very likely that also every member of the audience will find an artwork that will touch them.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
KG –
“When I am wrong I am right” is about how wrong behaviour in another circumstance could be right, it is about what may seem wrong to one may be right for someone else. It is really about keeping an open mind. I stole the name from Massimo Bottura, who has a dish called “If I am wrong I am right” inspired by an album by The Beatles. I related to the idea behind it and adjusted the name to my idea. I poured the painting on an old tabletop, then covered it with epoxy and removed the legs.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
KG –
I think ITSLIQUID GROUP can definitely represent an opportunity for an artist to exhibit his or her work in wonderful galleries. Being an artist often means also being a businessman and marketer, if ITSLIQUID GROUP can help an artist to reduce that part, it leaves more time for creativity.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us? What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
KG –
Yes I did. I think what you are doing is great and you are the perfect partner for a contemporary artist, architect or designer.
