Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Valeria Fano – I loved painting since I was a kid. I always had this need to express myself as another language in my life. I worked on different subjects during my life as an artist. Subjects as the difference between men and women, femenin and masculin… for example. Or seeing life as a big chain having each step the begging of the following one. Have destiny and self decisions play both a great role to define each life. Or based on literature. Reading and experimenting a very nutritive motivation.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
VF – Lately I have been working on the fact that each human being have a like a lot of different stages that little by little (like a very ancient wall) has its layers. And that each layer has very important connections and finally you are the addition of all those beautiful stages.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
VF – visitors always give you a very nice look and enriches me with their own points of view. I always listen to people, and love it.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
VF – Yes my style went changing as I went through different stages. From figurative to abstract. And also I love exploring techniques as well.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
VF – I don’t have one in particular, but I enjoyed a lot playing with an abstract idea, very philosophical point of view and trying to bring that into form and colour starting by a white canvass.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
VF – I found it very reflective very deep and wise as well!!

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
VF – In this exhibition I showed a piece (diptic) where you can see an ancient wall full of layers, where figures and colours can express the pass of time and the superposition of layers meaning the time going by. I wanted to represent my fathers life. He came from Venice was born there, and lived in Argentina since he was 7. The Nazis persecuted all his family and ended in Argentina. He grew up there and had a wonderful life. But always had this unfortunate and unforgettable background that you could see in his own “wall”.
