Interview: Sara Bresolin
Luca Curci talks with Sra Bresolin during MIXING IDENTITIES, second appointment of CANVAS CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Trying to paint the soul of the subjects is the current challenge of her painting. Self-taught, born in Venezia Mestre in 1982, Sara “Denkenesh” suddenly discovered art after studying foreign languages and theology. Her oil painting, which allows her to play on the various chromatic tones and shades, is simple but expressive, full of details and symbols of personal value. Her deeper interest is the manifestation of the inner world through the representation of the eyes and hands, deputies as key elements for the understanding of her entire artistic poetics. Creating, and making art has always been part of her life, in different fields, from drawing to woodwork, to oil painting and to her Art means analyzing oneself, getting involved and showing the world who she really is, establishing a deep connection with those in front of her, to share emotions, reflections, love. The human figure persists within the artworks, but the real protagonists are the details, the little things that in people, as in life, make the difference. She tries to wrap herself in the silence of the soul, to understand herself in order to be able to get in touch with the outside world.

Luca Curci- What are you currently working on?
Sara Bresolin –
I am currently working on a series of paintings about childhood and motherhood with Latin America and African subjects.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
SB –
I get to my current artistic practice as a self-taught painter. Everything started using the oil colours my grandfather left and just trying to paint something. As I studied theology, my older paintings were mostly about sacred themes. Little by little I discovered to have a special connection to Africa, so I started to focus on this kind of colours and subjects, over all people and not landscapes. My aim is “trying to paint the soul” , this is why I prefer to paint people, eyes and hands.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
SB –
The most challenging part about creating my artwork is establishing the connection between the subject and me. It’s like falling in love or it happens or it does not I must feel a deep contact with what I am going to paint, otherwise I know it will not have a soul, just an “outward shape”.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
SB –
Yes, of course, my style is changing all the time, because I am steadily changing inside, due to the steps I make in life, and this is the first reflection that occurs looking at my paintings. Obviously, there is a distinctive and permanent “mark” that forms my identity as an artist, but I can feel more and more my deepest part showing itself painting by painting.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
SB –
I agree with Leonardo da Vinci that used to say:” Art is never finished, only abandoned”. I can never see the end of an artwork, it is always perfectible to me, but there comes a moment when I simply stop to paint and I left the painting in a visible place of my home. I look at it day by day but I never retouch it. I just accept imperfection as “the present moment” and I know that the next painting will be different. Maybe better!

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
SB –
Yes, I agree with your vision so cosmopolitan and free. It was the best exhibition I have participated until here, with a really international breath, and I loved to join and talk with many artists, comparing our ideas about art and establishing new connections. I think the theme of the exhibition was absolutely in line with the times and perfect for my current art!

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
SB –
I have two artworks of different types in the exhibition. The first one is “L’oro della terra”. It is a part of the motherhood collection I mentioned before and it was born as a collaboration with the Brazilian photographer Céu Albuquerque. She is working on an interesting project that can be seen on her Instagram (@ceuderamos) and on her internet site (www.projetoporelas.com.br) with the idea of reframing the way people see their bodies and the taboo around nudity. When I saw on the Instagram the photo I later chose as a reference, I felt a thrill inside and I thought I had to contact her. About that photo, I immediately connected with the child. The image was so weird to me: the high spiritual yoga research and the concrete and human research to be loved and fed… I saw in that child all that is necessary, as she/he was there showing that “You are searching in the high what you already have inside, ready to be given… Love”. I tried to make the image like out of time, changing the background and emphasizing a few leaves and the use of purpurin. The other painting, “Veronique”, is taken by the photograph of a friend. It wants to show hope beyond every hope, represented by the gesture of smelling poppies that have no smell. I loved the contrast of this poetic image against a wall of concrete with some graffiti.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
SB –
Yes, I think so. I believe that helping artists from all over the world to connect is the most beautiful service ITSLIQUID can give us. It is a great thing to be promoted, but I believe that art can not be an individual fact. Of course, it is an individual path, an inner journey we can say, but nowadays artists (as they always) did need to meet and mix ideas, more than “media”.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
SB –
I appreciated a lot the organization, the location and the people I could meet during the opening. Most of all I loved the kind gesture of being helped to get in touch with other artists that were there with me. It was my first time in an exhibition and I really valued it.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
SB –
Yes, I would suggest a collaboration for sure. I think that your service is really in line with the times and opened to many contacts. I liked a lot the online e-ticket reservation, the presence of worldwide artists, and the professionality you put in your way to contact me. And the choice of the location, of course. Another thing I appreciated is that you just give the artist’s contact to whoever is interested in buying an artwork, without asking for a commission. I find it a way to enhance the artists and their art.
