Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Ozlem Baser – I began my art life with ceramics back in 2006. I then completed my Art Management Master’s degree and continued my sculpture studies. The meaning of life for me is to learn, research, self-develop, and advance. I follow the same moto in my art life.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
OB – Currently, I’m mostly focused on carving wood.

LC – What is your creative process like?
OB – Sometimes I get inspired from the readings I do, or sometimes I’m just affected from my own experiences, which then I reflect my emotions through my sculptures.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
OB – I focused on the ‘Yin & Yang’ and ‘Evolution’ themes for the most recent exhibition I participated.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
OB – Although the creation and production process for the artist is sometimes painful, the biggest problem is the exhibition and sales stage of the works.

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?
OB – The Evolution piece was from last exhibition in Bazilika San Lorenzo, Florence. Yin&Yang was specifically created for Anima Mundi Art festival.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
OB – The organization and the concept of the exhibition was very successful.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
OB – I’ve only worked with ITSLIQUID GROUP on this last exhibition, unfortunately I didn’t have much time to explore it due to my short stay.
