Interview: Pedro Noir
Luca Curci talks with Pedro Noir during VISIONS, third appointment of ANIMA MUNDI 2022, at Palazzo Bembo – Venice Grand Canal.
Photographer and painter and illustrator. Focusing on modern architecture, urb-ex and studio compositions of a surrealist and cubist character Neocubistic and neosurrealism art – oil on canvas.
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Pedro Noir – Opportunity to speak, lifestyle. A tool that can make people happy: a day, a space, a moment of mind development, another side’s view of things,
LC – What are you currently working on?
PN – In the photo: On the connection of photography and painting, but not as a collage but as a living painting. Create a composition in front of the lens with the help of body painting. The result is a clean photo. Which may look like a collage, a painting, or post-production finished photo, but appearances are deceiving. Such defiance of exaggerated post-production finished photos. In painting: 180cm large picture of Jesus on canvas, especially stretched on a cross-shaped frame. Jesus is thus included on the entire surface of the cross, as well as the image. I would like it to hang in some modern church in the future.
LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
PN – Sure. My paintings always express something. Sometimes just a trifle or a simple thing. I don’t like to philosophize about the work too much. For me, it is enough if the work catches the viewer’s attention at first glance, reads its title, and searches for it.
LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
PN – It is not that I speak to the world through works. Rather, I process stimuli and try to express them.
LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
PN – In painting: I say, phew, it’s finally done, it took a long time. In the photo: the model says: ,, phew, it’s finally done, it took a long time.
LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
PN – It is actually a vision for the future for artists. An artist must have a vision of where he wants to go. And here it is even a vision of many visions.
LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
PN – My entire work is hidden in the title of the exhibition. I simply have Visions at work, which, sometimes immediately, I have to at least draw or prepare for realization.
LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
PN – I am participating for the first time and I hope so. Any presentation is good for an artist, especially here on this scale.
LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
PN – Yes, there was always someone to help.
LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
PN – It’s huge, I don’t understand at all how so many actions can be managed. I applaud.
