Andrea Solaja has just lately joined Increase Art, bringing her numerous portfolio of abstract paintings and sculptures to the system. Andrea creates worlds and characters, taking part in with the distinction of gentle and dim, and tells stories making use of styles in her very own particular way to specific her emotions and as a resource of relief to escape from the shadows of her Serbian childhood when the nation was bombed.
How would you describe your inventive design and style?
At the age of 10, I’ve had a awful everyday living encounter: my place was bombed.
My sole resource of relief to escape from the horrors of all those days was imagining worlds and creating stories inside the mild of the only candle I had. The shadows projected on the partitions would flip into the shapes of the ever altering figures of my creativity, I can see my fingers weaving evanescent particulars which blended with the condensation and the chilly. That light shone on an outer area which was also little for a youngster. I had to generate one to turn into internal, immense.
I keep my childhood and its goals inside that compact flame. I sealed the darkness I experienced within with the wax and with the wick I tied the recollections of a lifetime which was not likely to be mine any more.
My artwork unfolds close to the narration of that mild. My paintings are symbionts of the match of contrasting gentle and dim which narrate with out revealing, which drain my interior inner thoughts on the canvas avoiding the styles from getting obstacles.
What messages or themes do you want to talk with your perform?
I paint the tales that strike my chords, with which I perceive a bond.
As a tailor, I wrap my canvas all-around you to make you turn out to be the art that you want to narrate. Your earlier, your perceptions and your inner thoughts are transformed as the warp and weft of a exclusive tale which has at last been unveiled. Yours.
How has your exercise progressed more than the several years? Have you always labored in an summary design?
To be honest, I have in no way thought about it.
In phrases of procedure, I’m not ready to say much better or worst, let us say that I have identified my mark, my effect. Is not this what every single artist aspires to?
My really like for Figurative fashion hasn’t adjust, but my sight surely has and that is why lots of individuals outline my art, Abstract.
‘’Nearsightedness’’ is my strategy, but the type is however Figurative.
What’s an ordinary working day like in your studio?
Oh, you would be so bored investing time with me in the studio!
I am so immersed in exploration and in my thoughts that I uncover it hard to be existing in the terrestrial entire world. I’m pretty slow in manufacturing of my artwork and the purpose of this slowness is due to a great deal of investigate driving each artwork: it starts from the story I want to tell and how I want it to be told the choice of the content that greatest fits the tale several hours of sketching… The moment I have the crystal clear notion in my head of the ultimate consequence, properly which is the instant I commence with the creation.
What/Who are your important influences?
I have usually experienced a enthusiasm for artists who have absent towards the tide, because you require to believe versus the tide if you want to have truly revolutionary ideas. Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Marcel Duchamp, Banksy, Lucio Fontana… to title a few. People usually compare my works with Caravaggio’s since of the darkness and I’m fine with that if we want to summarise briefly my artwork.
But, the fact is different. I’m obsessed with the tales driving every single Artist and their time, the society they lived in, but largely the motive which pushed them to make that variety of art, their psychology, their soul, their thoughts and doubts…
I’m a huge fan of Greek mythology, omnipresent in my do the job.
Who are some Increase Artwork artists with work you might be savoring at the minute?
In fact a good deal of them, these kinds of as Iain Andrews, Michele Fletcher, but Johanna Bath’s works are unquestionably my favourite. Her art reminds me of Gerhard Richter’s blurry series, but enriched with a female contact.
Are you at this time working on any interesting new jobs?
My last undertaking was ‘’Semi di Luce’’ for ‘’LUCE’’ Art Exhibition in Palermo and it was these an incredible knowledge. September is all over the corner with a ton of interesting jobs that I cannot wait to share with you! But now, I need to have some rest!
