Luca Curci talks with Virjules during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2022, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.
French artist, in his abstract works made in acrylic or in mixed technique, Virjules transports us to a universe of his own, borrowed from years spent abroad and his vision of the world. Never locked into a current or a style, each creation is nourished by cultural, societal, metaphysical inspiration or simple observation of nature. Virjules exhibits his works permanently in his own gallery in La Rochelle (4b rue Cardinal) and participates in numerous exhibitions in France and Europe.
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Virjules – Art for me is a way to express ideas, thoughts, emotions and a way of seeing life.
LC – What is the most difficult part of creating your works?
V – The most difficult part is the faithful transcription of my thoughts on the canvas.
LC – What subject are you working on?
V – I often work on major philosophical themes, such as Life, Love or Death, but also on subjects inspired by social facts or sometimes by travels, novels or films…
LC – How do you feel when you see your finished work?
V – I feel satisfaction if it corresponds perfectly to the initial idea I had in mind. If not, I don’t keep this painting.
LC – What do you think of the concept of this exhibition? How did that inspire you?
V – I liked the concept of this exhibition and it turns out that I had made paintings on this theme shortly before.
LC – Do you mind explaining something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
V – The 3 paintings on display are “Evocation de Femme”. The female body is self-sufficient to express the “body language” and it is for this reason that I chose to represent it in a very refined way.
LC – What are your suggestions on our services? Can we offer something more to artists?
V – A suggestion: unless I’m mistaken, I haven’t seen a program for the year of your various exhibitions, which facilitated the planning of the Artists’ staff. Personally, I would like to know the organization chart of your company.
LC – What do you think of ITSLIQUID platform? Did you enjoy collaborating with us?
V – I enjoyed collaborating with you. I appreciated your professionalism and your seriousness as well as your quick, clear and precise answers to my questions.
