Luca Curci talks with Mosa during the 11th Edition of CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.
Mosa is an artist based in NYC, who graduated from the School of Visual Arts. Almost all her drawings are based on the recognition and pride of her Asian identity. Also, the conflict between real life and the illusional world. Including her point of view on life and death, value and self-cognition, losing herself and finding it back. Every drawing is a process of quarrelling with herself that she is creating a world without logic but with the order.
Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Mosa – I am a freelance artist based in New York City. I completed my four years of college studies at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, where is a place full of art, and I am always exposed to different artistic voices.
LC – What are your thoughts while you paint? Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
M – I always think of some experiences randomly when I am drawing, and sometimes I imagine a fragment. I don’t have any special rituals, but before I work, I’m afraid of oil or unclean things on the table sticking to the paper, so I take alcohol and wipe the table first, this is my only habit.
LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
M – Sometimes yes, different people will resonate with my work, and I prefer to hear their feedback.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
M – My style has changed three times in the four years of college, and I think these changes are in ideas, and in the richness of the images.
LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
M – My theme is basically myself.
LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
M – It was great to hear the voices of different artists.
LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
M – “Maternity” is also my interpretation of the union of man and nature, with the woman in the picture eating the eggs of moths so that they can enter her body and become part of her.
LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
M – I really enjoy working with a professional curatorial team.
LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
M – It helps artists to promote themselves better.
