Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Renata Maiblum –
I am currently engaged in advancing the field of narrative expression through the creation of handmade digital paintings, while also exploring the possibilities of combining this medium with traditional paper-based painting.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
RM –
My educational background lies at the intersection of art history and social science, and my lifelong passion for painting has been a central focus of my artistic pursuits. Although I have not pursued painting as a professional career, it has been a constant in my life. Specifically, my deep interest in art history and art writing has helped shape my approach to creating abstract narratives through my artwork. My artistic practice is, therefore, informed by a multidisciplinary framework that is inspired by my broad knowledge base and diverse experiences.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or instinctive process?
RM –
My creative process is deeply intuitive, and I often find that it is not a specific subject that drives my artistic expression, but rather a feeling or emotion that guides the visual language I employ in my paintings. I experience an instinctive impulse to communicate and express these feelings through my art, and this internal drive propels me to create. As such, my paintings are often an unfiltered and spontaneous outpouring of my innermost emotions, translated into a visual language that seeks to capture and communicate the essence of my feelings.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
RM –
Art serves as my primary medium of creative expression, which I channel through my paintings and writings. As a practitioner of the art, I view the creative process as an essential means of giving voice to the essence of life itself. I see myself as a conduit for this expressive process, through which the energy and vitality of life are translated into tangible forms. My artistic practice, therefore, represents a way for me to engage with the world in a meaningful and authentic manner, and to share my unique perspective on the human experience with others. How do you feel when you see your work completed?
I experience a sense of wholeness and fulfilment, which is characterized by a complex interplay of emotions such as excitement, peace, and contentment. This feeling of completeness is a source of great joy and inspiration, which continues to propel me towards further growth and fulfilment.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
RM –
In my assessment, the concept of this exhibition is highly promising. Exhibitions of this nature possess a unique potential that stems from their inclusivity and openness to diverse artistic perspectives. These qualities provide an opportunity for a wide variety of artists to showcase their work and establish a presence in an art market that can be challenging to penetrate. I am particularly impressed with the diversity of perspectives and the focus on inclusivity, which I believe will contribute to a rich and engaging artistic experience for both the artists and the audience.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
RM –
I have only one artwork, a handmade digital painting called Bicycle I, from 2022.
The painting seamlessly blends two styles and depicts a bicycle in an abstract and cubist way, breaking down the object into geometric shapes, while still maintaining the essence of the bicycle. The use of geometric shapes and lines creates a sense of movement and energy, while the use of colour adds depth and dimension. The use of digital tools adds a layer of complexity to the piece, allowing for a level of precision and control that is not always possible with traditional media. The overall effect is a dynamic work that engages the viewer on both a formal and conceptual level. The painting is a great example of how the tradition of the past can be reinterpreted with the technology of the present.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
RM –
In my view, the Platform represents an innovative and flexible approach to
promoting artistic expression. The fluid and dynamic nature of the platform is a key factor in its success, as it allows for a wide range of artistic perspectives to be showcased in various venues and settings. I am particularly impressed with the diversity of opportunities that the Platform offers to artists, which can help foster a greater sense of community and support within the artistic community. As a former gallery owner, I recognize the immense potential of this type of concept, which is characterized by its inclusiveness and accessibility. I believe that the Platform represents an exciting new direction in the promotion of artistic expression and that it has the potential to significantly enhance the visibility and recognition of talented artists.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
RM –
I would certainly suggest a collaboration with you. I have found that you offer a wealth of valuable opportunities and services, which are distinguished by your exceptional efficiency and transparency. In my experience, your commitment to delivering high-quality service has been exemplary, and I believe that your expertise and resources can be of great benefit to those seeking to advance their professional goals.
