Following the blog’s 5th anniversary celebratory exhibitions and all they encompassed, I am very pleased to bring you the first Artist Showcase of 2017! This time, we get the chance to hear all about artist Luciana Mile’s work.
When did your interest in art/creating begin?
I’ve always been interested in some form of art. I spent a good amount of my life in the theatre. My interest in visual art began in middle school, but didn’t really come into fruition until 2010 or 2011.
What is your starting point for each piece?
My starting point is a blank canvas.
Who/what influences your work?
I think everything in my small universe influences my work, but I really love Dada.
What do you hope the viewer gets from your work?
I don’t really look too far past the completion stage. Once a painting is done, I no longer consider it mine.
What do you think about the term outsider art? Is there a term that you think works better?
I think it’s fine. I don’t generally like labels but I understand their purpose.
What are you working on at the moment?
The next painting.
Where do you see your work taking you in the future?
Painting somewhere in the South of France.
