Interview: Iris Schiebener
Luca Curci talks with Iris Schiebener during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2019 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

In the beginning, my artistic development was clearly shaped by the accuracy of my graphic profession. In the beginning, the focus was on realistic painting, the precise observation of the lights, shadows and perspective. This was also reflected in my choice of motif; landscapes fascinated me as well as still lifes, faces or macro shots of z.B. flowers or objects. In the course of my artistic development, my pictures became more free and expressive, which developed up to the abstract representation. However, my preferred materials such as acrylic and oil remained, often combined in mixed techniques, with structures or organic elements to give the respective motifs an individual depth and meaningfulness.

LUCA CURCI – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
IRIS SCHIEBENER – I have been interested in art since I was very little. My parents always supported me on my way. Especially my Mom. First I actually was more in grafic design and communication design. But painting has always been my passion. So I started an additional study at art.

LC – What are you currently working on?
IS –
Currently I am working on abstract landscapes and when I need to get my focus on something different I love to take photos or paint something realistic (portraits of humans or animals).

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
IS – I usually get my inspiration from the nature that surrounds me. But I really love the sea with the rough coast lines, the intense colours, the wind and the fast changing clouds. So many of my paintings are sea themes.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
IS – Mainly the sea.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
IS – Yes, my style changed during the last years. I guess it became more expressive. But fortunately spectators still recognize my paintings.

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?
IS – The paintings shown were actually created for a show which was held at the beginning of last year in Westerland / Sylt, where I had a solo show at the townhouse gallery.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival‘s theme?
IS – I guess they fit because the landscapes weren’t too abstract so the spectator still gets a far glimpse of recognizing the landscape.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
IS – I think it is a great opportunity to show art to different group of interested spectators.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
IS – Yes, it was a really nice cooperation.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
IS – Yes, definitely.
