Luca Curci – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

Vardi Bobrow – ‘Epidermis’ is a wall installation. The work explores three major themes that interest me as a visual artist: duration, accumulation and constant transformation.
‘Epidermis’ is the upper layer of the skin of all living creatures (humans and plants); its main function is protect against the surrounding environment while renewing itself constantly.  Although constantly changing, it is always present and protective.
‘Epidermis’ consists of charcoal (and dry pastel pigment powder) drawings on semi-transparent silk papers. I assemble layers upon layers of those drawings on the semi-transparent silk papers, so each layer influences the layers lying beneath and above, each layer is a protective layer. The drawing isn’t actually protected (with fixative) so at the same time it slowly deteriorates, creating a sort of constantly changing landscape layout.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

V.D. – I keep on investigating my three concepts. These days I am working on a new series of works – “Brush Landscape”. I construct two and three dimensional works using  different kinds of industrial brushes, of various sizes, lengths, colors, thickness etc. Like ‘Epidermis’, this series use layers, but this time the layers are made of brushes

L.C. – What is art for you?

V.D. – I believe it’s a way of life, of thinking, observing even exploring.  I can’t see my life without art.

L.C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

V.D. – It’s a very positive initiative; one that allows artists to dialog with other artists, curators, and places worldwide. It’s a very important platform for artists around the world to collaborate, create and display their ideas and their art.

L.C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

V.D. – International ArtExpo provides indeed opportunities and a showcase for artists and I only wish it expands its worldwide activities.
