Interview: Martina Della Rocca
Luca Curci talks with Martina Della Rocca during Venice International Art Fair 2020 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello

Italian of origin and an artist at heart, Martina Della Rocca is passionate about music and about colour. She spends her time not only welcoming guests to la Bergerie, but also as a contemporary painter, developing imaginative artworks. After studying the techniques of the grandmasters for four years at the Parisian art school ‘Ecole du Louvre’, she now expresses her creativity on large canvases in which she brings together fragmented shapes and vivid colours.

“By immersing the onlooker in a universe of ever-changing colour and light, the wonderful mix of strength and joy illustrated in Martine’s work leaves freedom for dreams and for personal interpretation.”

Luca Curci –  What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most? 
Martina Della Rocca –
After a few years at the Ecole du Louvre in training as a copyist and designer in the nude “living”, I had a deep desire to compose an imaginary gradually moving away from the reality of subjects to which I had always paid attention. The experience that most influenced my work was the 3 M contact: Music – movement – mixing of colors now forming the essence of my creativity.

LC – Which subject are you working on? 
MDR –
My favorite subjects constantly travel in the movement of life between light and darkness, question and above all answer in harmony with my truth of the moment.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
MDR –
The biggest challenge is to make sure that the topic I’m working on is in line with my emotions and feelings. In short, I seek to offer my feelings to those who wish to possess my work.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme? 
MDR –
Specific theme? Not really because from the moment I settle in front of the white canvas, I don’t know where the grace of the imaginary will lead me.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
MDR –
I finally found my style in which I like it.  In which way? By painting again, again and again….

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
MDR –
My work is not only intended for one festival but for all opportunities to make it known.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?  
MDR –
The works presented combine perfectly with the spirit of your Festival.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform? Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?  
MDR –
Your platform is no doubt a starting point for some (like me) and confirmation for others.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
MDR –
Any artist would like to be recognized and invited by you!!
