Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Orna L.Brock – Art for me is a language of communicating my feelings ideas, beliefs & identity.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
OLB – I am a visual artist creating my art in a few mediums of the arts like sculpture, drawing, painting, prints, photography & video art. From a very early childhood I was trained to express myself through the art of music which was the most fundamental element that had finally defined & led my way to create in two & three dimensional visual arts. There are many experiences which influenced my artistic work. Living in a rural area for a long time is one of them or becoming a mother, has made fundamental changes.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
OLB – My creative inspiration comes from experiences which are sometimes related to the very simple & esoteric in everyday life, or it could be related to the encounter with the beauty I find in nature. Sometimes my inspirations are related to theoretical ideas or concepts, to which I would try & find a visual plastic expression.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
OLB – The most challenging part about creating my art works is to see how amorphic illusive ideas or abstract ideas & perceptions are getting their visual & plastic identity & expression, being shaped & then meet with the viewers.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
OLB – My art style can be described as Abstract, with a tendency for conceptual art. My style developed during the years, but I think the change is, may be, in my artistic perceptions which by the years got new visions & new understandings.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
OLB – In my art work “Syncope” 2020(5D) I am creating surfaces of an imaginary morphological landscapes, views, of the things that are the basic forms & structures of the organism systems. My art work is questioning & exploring the attitudes of the cultural mechanisms toward the body & the organism, reviewing the cultural construction as an external mean of control, which is, sometimes, imposing its norms, attitudes & forms on the Organism system. The theme of the exhibition is suggesting to reconnect to the very base elements that is defining the artistic means of expression. To refer to the actual material on which all the gestures of art expression & ideas are being projected.
