Interview: Maria Claudia Rivadeneira
Luca Curci 
talks with Maria Claudia Rivadeneira during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2022, at ITSLIQUID ART SPACE – Venice Grand Canal.

Maria Claudia was born in Bogota Colombia. She is an Architect from Universidad de los Andes. In addition to Architecture and Interior Design, she now dedicates her time to her passion for art. Her themes deal with the subtle and delicate expressions of the female soul, telling a love story in spite of the reality of challenges.”My Art is an expression of the feminine, of the subtle, of the world of dreams and memories, of my soul. It is the expression of a love story’s complexity through unique and layered soul geometries. They are real stories woven with imaginary abstract emotions where the threads of soul fibers create textures and surfaces while transmitting feelings. They can be calm, spontaneous, organic, romantic, and poetic compositions or sometimes dramatic, painful and broken into pieces symbolizing the fragility of the human being. The fragility that questions who we are and how to creatively explore new ways of loving ourselves, sewing delicate seams to restore our soul.”

Luca Curci – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
Maria Claudia Rivadeneira –
I have loved art since I was a little girl -especially painting. My hands needed to be busy… playing with paper, fabric and colors in the garden. After I graduated with a degree in Architecture and used computer applications to design projects, the more I felt the urge to return to drawing and painting to express myself. Making art has an emotional ingredient that I need in my life.

LC – Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
MCR –
Yes, I love to play music… dance… read books… and be immersed in nature before I start painting. I paint from a place of happiness, romance and freedom. When I start a painting I’m not thinking–I’m just feeling. I usually don’t have a precise idea of how the painting will develop. I only know it is time to let the emotions flow and that is when the story begins.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
MCR –
My inspiration comes from memories, experiences, travels, my desires… from my soul… from my deeper self.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
MCR –
Yes, it has changed. It is evolving and it continues to become more personal. My art is a reflection of my inner world and it is an expression of a dialogue that I have with myself in an intuitive way that needs to reveal itself.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
MCR –
I feel alive…and also intrigued by the story the painting is telling me. After the painting is finished, I always see a message to myself.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exibition?
MCR –
Yes, I agree with your vision of Art it is very interesting. The theme is rich and profound subject. As an artist, it gives me an opportunity to express myself about conscious awareness.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
MCR –
Yes definitely I had enjoying cooperating in this project, your team is amazing.
