Interview: Margit Johanna Abl
Luca Curci talks with Margit Johanna Abl, during the 16th Edition of Venice International Art Fair 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.

Margit Johanna Abl was born in Bad Schallerbach Austria and after years of living in Munich, she returned to her home country. The artist trained herself in Vienna at Renè Marcel Riviere amongst other things in painting, graphics, sculpture, copper etching and gold plating. About her artistic practice, Margit J. Abl says: “Painting my Abl-Art emerges from the deep immersion into the magic of colours. Vibrant, pulsating, questioning… Leaving traces. In each picture, the challenge is to convey an emotional world of experience to the viewer. Thus the colour becomes an adventure, a venture an argument”.

Luca Curci – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
Margit Johanna Abl –
I trained myself in Vienna, at René Marcel Rivière, amongst other skills in painting, graphics, sculpture, copper etching and gold plating.

LC – What are your thoughts while you paint? Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
MJA – During my artistic works, I listen to various styles of music. I do not have specific thoughts, painting is a kind of meditation to me.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
MJA – The most challenging is to decide when my artwork is finished.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
MJA – My style changed over the years in various ways. I would say it changed into something more positive, but it is hard to describe.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
MJA – As mentioned before, the hardest part is to decide when the artwork is truly complete.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
MJA – I was lucky enough to take part in the theme “Future Landscapes” in Venice and Rome with my painting “Rainforest of the sea”. The rainforest, the lung of the planet, Eden.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
MJA – The connection of land and sea. Naturally, the rainforest contains a lot of spirit and soul.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
MJA – The cooperation with ITSLIQUID Group was lovely and very easygoing.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
