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!!

What are the invisible mechanisms of current forms of artificial intelligence (AI)? How is AI impacting our personal lives and socioeconomic spheres? How do we define intelligence? How do we envision the future of humanity? As technological innovation continues to shape our identities and societies, the question of what it means to be or remain human has become the subject of fervent debate. Taking advantage of the de Young museum's proximity to Silicon Valley, Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI arrives as the first major exhibition in the US to explore the relationship between humans and intelligent machines through an artistic lens.

INTERVIEW: DAVID PHOENIX

Interviews | November 12, 2020

"More than a job, this is my purpose. Sensing, understanding, expressing are the guidelines that have led me to what you will witness in my artwork. As per my personality, my art is a stylistic fusion of encounters and opportunities. Starting with puntinism and arriving to Action Painting and Pouring Painting, I have found my "colourful" way of expressing myself. Passion, a desire to live render my artwork my presentation card. Every single brush stroke, chromatic flexion, line of colour exploded on the canvas, is a part of me." Read more
