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 – 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.

Interview: Lidea Hajjar

Interviews | September 19, 2020

Mother of four young men, Lidea M. Hajjar, from the Land of Cedars, a tiny spot on the world map, yet Lebanon is mentioned more than 70 times in the Holy Book. Faith and experiences shaped her multidimensional personality, translated in her ambitions, generosity, thoughtfulness, and passion. Pleasantly calm, she fights for what she desires with the belief that great things don’t come easily. Full- time learner, motivated by her love for everything around her, because she says we are part of the universe and we have plenty of resources. She got her degree in Interior Architecture with honours from the Lebanese American University along with her two elder boys, and another degree in psychology from Lebanese University. She speaks 5 languages and the sixth being a universal one, Art, became her greatest language. She designs her projects, plays guitar, dances, and paints with her body, mind, and soul. And in her Ted talk about Architecture and Tango, Lidea stated that everything is correlated, and every work should be done passionately. For years, her little free time occupation was painting, using different techniques and mediums. But fell lately for the acrylic abstracts, where she finds her hand wandering over the canvas, evoking lots of her emotions, and emanating unlimited expressions, especially in a style of her own she called ‘Limitless Limit’. Her goal is having lovers for her paintings more than clients, she wants her paintings owners to fall for them every day. Self-taught painter, based on the discipline of architecture, the limitations and constraints are her opportunities to design and paint. Eco-friendly artists and engineers are a must for our planet. Rules and norms are her challenge to create. Flexibility is mandatory. Criticism and new approaches are cuddled. She is enrolling in a realism workshop to add skills to her skillset. For Lidea the ''Sky is the Limit''. Through her passion for Life, she enjoys nature, reading, music, dance, yoga, walking her pets, and the most importantly spending time with her beloved ones and eating chocolate. Read more
