Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Zeynep Yazici –
Art aims to provide the beauty to human as making it more… The more means, being more sentimental by evolving the sense organs to more sensitive. Art is a unique activity which covers the communication of human, nature and the life and which is very special with the creations process.

LC – What is your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
ZY –
I beat the cancer after a long treatment time, which is a hard disease, especially for o mother. I was in different feelings when having the cure as a woman, a spouse and a mother. It was the first time for me. They were such painful and on the edge which was allowed me paint only, but not able to tell. I was not aware that my artist side was that strong. It was just happened but was good because was fed from the all my feelings.

LC – What do you want to tell in your studies? Simply; What do you get inspired from?
ZY –
The people who directed by the authority have limited freedom.
Art like the 6th organ which host the 5 basic senses. Time to time it is the language or the ear of the people. It is impossible not to see or hear, when the art was been told. Art is the basic for the freedom of the people.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
ZY –
It is inappropriate myself to talk about Contemporary Art, when it was not defined by even the Art Historians. If I need to tell something on that, I think Contemporary Art touched on the newness, which included the criticism about the topical like technology, science, and environment.

LC – What is your creative process like?
ZY –
The hardest process for the artist is the defining the theme, sometimes it takes days, weeks and months. I can say that I make brain exercise. I choose the colors after found the theme, which is suitable to my technic. There is not an exact finish date, it is completely up to me and absolutely included the infinity. Each touch made another paint. The paint escapes from the infinity when I define the stop and it took the dimension in its own.

LC – Which art themes do you purpose? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
ZY –
My art life was occurred from 2 terms, before cancer and after cancer. It made me expressionist. I put the changes, which was made by the cancer to the canvas. I have been going on to experience to transfer my re-born, which was given to me after the cancer, by discovering my own technic. I believe art has a curing power.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the festival?
ZY –
I absolutely approve and agree. I have never been ask about what the Canvas mean and how the word of Canvas was used in history. I thought on that. I found the theme very original and it is very good to give an option to choose as multidisciplinary.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
ZY –
The Skin Project was a show with the “human” theme. I like to use the human figures between my conics. I selected Sezen Aksu, who is the most famous singer in Turkey, for Canvas International Fair. She is famous in global, too. I wanted to transfer her and my feelings to the audiences by using this face. I wanted to make a challenge by her face, too.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
ZY –
I absolutely recommend the Itisliquid partnership. The service we got was same as described before. The process was so smooth and I extend the display time until the next exhibition. I wish the partnership with itisliquid longer. I will recommend it to my friends.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
ZY –
It is a perfect organization which works with the specialists and creating the new areas for the artists.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services?
ZY –

INTERVIEW: BIRGIT GÜNTHER

Interviews | November 16, 2020

I studied interior design with painting at Prof. Manfred Hollmann at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. I was born 1962 in Ludwigsburg, Germany, and I have been living and working in Munich for over 35 years. I find inspiration for my painting in nature and through people which I interpret in different ways. Colors, color compositions, color sensations and spatial effects are important of my work, which should reflect the joy of life. A certain motif is not always easily recognizable in the abstract paintings. The viewers are invited to feel lightness, openness or tensions and to let their emotions run free. I am a member of a professional group of female painters. We meet annually and discuss new techniques with lecturers and develop and improve our painting skills. Read more
