Interview: Sanne Rasmussen
Luca Curci
talks with Sanne Rasmussen during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

I always had a big passion for art. Back in 2010, I got the opportunity to live out my dream of developing my painting techniques. I seized the chance to create a new life path for myself. There was no doubt in my mind that I was doing the right thing. Being creative brings me joy, and I am deeply grateful that I have been able to do so.

Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Sanne Rasmussen
– I came to the art scene after a 20-year career in the financial sector. I attended the Artschool Spektrum in Copenhagen, Denmark. For several years, I was a pupil at Daniel Goldenberg’s private studio, also in Copenhagen.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
SR
– My art is often based on situations from everyday life depicting people on the street of a big city or in the confined space of a cozy cafe. I try to capture a moment frozen in the middle of the city’s hectic pulse. It could be in Copenhagen, London, Paris, or maybe a fictional place in the world. My artworks convey her fascination with the city and its dwellers.

LC – What is your creative process like?
SR
– I work mostly in oil on canvas, often only with 5-6 colors. The interplay of light and shadow gives life and movement to my paintings, but at the same time emanates calm and harmony, where the viewer is offered an inner dialogue with the work. I often mix figurative and abstract styles to highlight the paintings’ central motif.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
SR
– In recent years, I participated in many international group exhibitions and held several solo shows. My paintings are in public and private collections in Denmark, other European countries, and the US.

LC – Can you explain something about the painting you have in our exhibition?
SR
– My inspiration for my cafe series came in connection with my daughter having to study for an exam on her master’s. She diligently used the cafes in Copenhagen as a place to work.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
SR
– The work represented at the exhibition fits in super nicely with the theme. People are often the central focus of my works, so the subject is very much in line with my style.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
SR
– This is the first time I have collaborated with you and it has gone well.
