Interview with Helmut Eding

Luca Curci talks with the artist Helmut Eding during BORDER FESTIVAL. Helmut Eding was born in January 31, 1951 in Stadl-Paura Austria. He graduated in the 60s, after a 4-year apprenticeship as a church painter and he also realised art works. Large-format painting focusing Photorealism became his specialty. His series “limiting, confining, Exclude” shows the excesses of modern civilization. After that series, he had numerous exhibitions in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Helmut Eding realised many atmospheric interior and exterior designs in bars, restaurants, nightclubs, shops and privat residences, mansions at home and abroad. His latest art project is “Art in Nature“.

Luca Curci – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our festival.     Helmut Eding – I present light art in form of balls of different sizes. The light balls are illuminated from the inside. The motives are from pop art to organic motifs.

L.C. – We were attracted by your last artistic production, have the artworks presented been created for Border festival or as a part of pre-existent works?
H.E. – No, they haven`t been produced for the festival fragmented identities , the artworks were pre-existent.

L.C. – When did you start practicing art and why?
H.E. – I am doing the light arts for 4 years, but actually I am a painter for more than 30 years, with paintings on canvas with all kind of motifs and sizes. For me, art is essential and a complementation of the human existence, it is a tool of communication and making inspiration visible.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
H.E. – In my work I transform my confrontation with nature and landscape with surrealism. My inspiration comes from the attempt to look behind the wall of reality.

L.C. – What’s the art tip you usually receive? Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
H.E. – No, I produce pictures through my own inspiration and ideas. So far I didn´t not get my inspiration from visitors.

 L.C. – What art themes do you pursue? What are your preferred subjects if any?            H.E. – I don´t have preferred subjects. I like surrealism, I am flexible. My ideas depends on emotions, questions and thoughts, which I try to transform in light and colors or my canvas paintings.

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Platform? Do you think It’s LIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
H.E. – Actually yes, but unfortunately I didn’t have the possibility to have an exchange with other artists and curators. I was disappointed after visiting the exhibition, only few guests were there. Maybe it needs to be promoted.
