Luca Curci talks with Sandra Paris during VISIONS of ANIMA MUNDI Festival in Venice.

Sandra Paris is a french self-taught painter born in 1977. She live and work near Paris.
After art studies, Sandra became a graphic artist in a publishing house but she missed painting. At that time, she was always working on computer and she needed to work on the painting matter again. So she decided to go back to it.
Her colorful universe is made of female characters with long necks and sad expressions, landscapes and still lifes. Her influences are evidents: Modigliani, post impressionism, german expressionnism, fauvism,etc.
In 2014, SAndra started collages. A pieces of magazine photos or old photographies that she paints. She tries to compose an dream world with her collages.

Luca Curci – Do you agree with our vision of art and what you think about the theme of the festival?

Sandra Paris – You offer people a wide choice of works and a wide choice of styles. In addition, your festivlas are open to the world. Each artist has a chance to exhibit and be seen.

L.C. – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?

S.P. – Generally, I try to be faithful of the theme but it isn’t always easy. For «Alchemic body», I had proposed a embraced and nested couple with reference to Klimt’s painting «The kiss».

L.C. – What role does the artist have in society? And the art?

S.P. – The artist has the role given to him. Some artists want to denounce things or fight against injustice. For my part, I can’t. It is not that what happen to the world does not interest me but I don’t know how to help. I just want to make people dream. I just want to arouse people’s feelings : rejection or pleasure.

L.C. – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?

S.P. – I studied art at the university but the studies were more theoretical than practical. So I decided to change to do graphic design studies. After art studies, I became a graphist in a publishing house. In 2007, I decided to start painting again. I did it in parallel to my professional activity, after my job, the week-ends, during holidays. When I had time.
When I was 10 years old, my dad offered me a subscription to an art magazine. Every month, I received cards where paintings and art movements were explained and detailed. I understood then, that it did not matter if the head was too small, if the skin was green or if the body was too long. The important thing was to create an emotion. A drawing can be well done and give no emotion at all. And at the university, one of my art teacher encouraged us to go to exhibitions. Because it’s very important to see and know the masters from the past and present.

L.C. – How do you find creative inspiration?

S.P. – I find inspiration everywhere. In the museums, in the street, gardens, internet, art books. I love reading art books. But my principal influences are 19th and 20th century.

 

L.C. – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?

S.P. – I’m a self taught artist and the most difficult part for me is realisation. Sometine I can’t do something, I.e. I can’t translate my mind with my paintings.

L.C. – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?

S.P. – ITSLIQUID GROUP has the will to show established artists or beginners. And it’s an opportunity for the artists to show their art in an amazing city and a fantastic place.

L.C. – Did you feel comfortable cooperating with us?

S.P. – I don’t speak English very well and my Italian is bad so it’s a little bit difficult for me to communicate. But ITSLIQUID GROUP team especially Carmen and Gabriella (there were my interlocutors) are very patient and very professional. They do everything to help the artists.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
