Interview: Linda Naili
Luca Curci talks with Linda Naili during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2021 – 9th Edition, at Misericordia Archives.
Linda Naili is a complete artist with a strong presence, she has rich creativity with multiple energetic artworks. The artist began as a designer creating her first jeans brand, in 2008 she used to paint on a limited edition of men’s and women’s outfits made of denim which gave her a burning desire to become an artist. Her artwork is based on the abstract style first inspired by the American artist Jackson Pollock, Linda explored different forms and colors mixed during many years. What Linda liked the most about the abstract is that it is far away from the representational concept. After learning more about art styles, forms and colors, she discovered new techniques and genres that she has experimented with since 2012 she quickly became absorbed, passioned by these forms and genres of painting such as abstract landscapes, abstract portraits and faces, as we can notice abstract is still and will always be her main movement of surrealism and Impressionism. Her source of inspiration for many years concerning the abstract nature comes from the beautiful colors in the paintings of the French master of Impressionism Claude Monet. The key messages behind Linda Naili’s artwork are imperfect forms, the beauty of abstract landscapes to sensitize the world for the preservation of Mother Nature and our planet. Beauty and joy are everywhere around us if only open our eyes and take time to enjoy it, said the artist. Linda Naili creates artworks on different supports such as canvas, glass, and wood using acrylic sometimes oil and various tools such as a brush, palette knife and wood tip. Imagination is her precious source and color is her passion.
