  • Art And Ecstasy An Interview With Artist Sara Falli AUTRE
    More info
    The artworks of Florence based Sara Falli are both mythic and phantasmagorical. They tell visual stories with simple, but complex devices a chaotic, dark, and beautiful world of strange creatures, women seemingly contorted with desire, and the veins of stained water color that conjure blood and ritual. Falli is telling us secrets with her brushstrokes, but keeps them deeply hidden in a labyrinth of multidimensionality. Falli has also published an autobiography, entitled Vita di Saragaia, which hints at a dysfunctional past which adds yet another layer. PAS UN AUTRE: When did you know you wanted to become an artist? SARA FALLI: I began to think of myself as an artist in a very hazy way when I was 10. I noticed that art made me feel good and this happened before I even started to become aware of things... I really began without making a decision and it has become a need I cannot help but satisfy, otherwise I think I'd be a very sad person. However I started using the word "artist" to definemy status only ten years ago when I owned my first studio, after finishing my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts. AUTRE: When did you start drawing in your current style? FALLI: My style now is really just a stage that I am exploring, I do not know where it will take me, but I love to experiment and give myself new goals. I am very different when I work on canvas than when I work on paper, because as materials and type of paints change, I am very much guided by the impact of color now. AUTRE: How would you describe your artworks? FALLI: My works are anchors of an underground work that is within me. Those that I have been able to do are perhaps a thousandth part of what I would like to do; my job is to keep on trying to make visible to myself and others my underground world. AUTRE: What are some of your inspirations/influences? FALLI: I am inspired by everything that moves me and captures my interest. I place these feelings aside for a long time, then one day the whole or a part reaches out, always transformed by my use of color, for me the mediation through the matter is crucial, the ink pigments mixed with water, the smudge of graphite... I do not know if I would be able to be a conceptual artist and never get my hands dirty, but one day it could be stimulating to try there too. AUTRE: What do you think about when you are making art? FALLI: When I create art I am either intractable or in ecstasy, almost "I can't draw a single line" or "I will do it, I am invincible". It takes me a while to find the right dimension, I need good music, space and time to "lose". FALLI: In 2007 I wrote an autobiographical novel that was published by a major Italian publishing house. I had a very "offbeat" infancy, to use an euphemism, and I wanted to tell it. On the cover of the book there are 4 of my oil paintings; in that period I was painting people's objects, and those were my objects. Now besides painting I'm writing short stories. AUTRE: Whats next? FALLI: Then, for the future, I can only say that I will always be doing, never trying to reach a finality. I am terrified of finding myself at the finish, but the goal is not so much the finish, it is nothing but a mirage, you can see it only while walking. You can find Sara Falli's book Vita di Saragaia here. You can also follow her on flickr to see new works. Text by Oliver Maxwell Kupper for Pas Un Autre.

    Cezanne in Provence : The great Neo-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne spent most of his life working in the beautiful surroundings of Aix-en-Provence, where he was born in 1839. Today, the Jas de Bouffan, the Bibemus quarry, the Chateau-Noir, the Mont Sainte-Victoire, and the Estaque are all famous as motifs in the master's most triumphant works. The settings are more than mere sceneries, encapsulating Cezanne's belief that the essence of nature is first and foremost revealed by color. Only rarely has a landscape been so perfectly linked with an artist; this superb book uncovers this connection, and how it gave birth to a new pictorial style. Peggy Guggenheim: This is the true story of a twenty-year friendship between the author (a Venetian nobleman) and the famous art collector Peggy Guggenheim. Paolo Barozzi recounts the great lady's life, and the reader learns not only about her invaluable collection, but also her relationships with the greatest artists and writers of the time: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg. Recreating the enchanting atmosphere of the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal, Peggy Guggenheim is an homage to the extraordinary woman who became an incarnation of Venice. Miro's Studio : In 1956, Miro settled into a large white atelier in Palma de Mallorca where he worked unrelentingly until his death in 1985. In this book, the photographs of Jean-Marie del Moral re-create the poetic universe of that grand atelier, crowded with the objets trouv's and household items that fired Miro's imagination. Juan Teodoro Punyet Miro recalls his grandfather, the old man with large blue eyes, who taught him as a child to listen to silence. Picasso, The Objects : "The most everyday object is a vessel, a vehicle of my thoughts." In Picasso's hands, cardboard, paper and rope metamorphose into a guitar, a goat, a woman. His friend, the great photographer Edward Quinn, a privileged witness to Picasso's creative moments, recreates them here in 80 pages of everyday objects given new life in an imaginary world. ISBN: 9781614281818. Set of 4 Art Memoires. Box :16.25 x 16.25" | Each book: 6.0 x 8.5" Each book is 80 pages with 60 images. About the Authors: Cezanne in Provence : Denis Coutagne has been the director of the Musee Granet, in Aix-en-Provence, since 1980. Starting with the museum's first Cézanne exhibition, in 1982, he has strove to "rehabilitate" Cézanne in his hometown ever since. A commemorative exhibition (co-sponsored by the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.), "Cézanne in Provence," tookplace at the renovated Musée Granet in 2006. Peggy Guggenheim: Paolo Barozzi is a writer, translator, and journalist. He worked for Time and Life. He has written for such magazines as Il Mondo, Domus, Nuovi Argomenti, Vogue , and Harper's Bazaar. He is the author of Andy Warhol: I Want To Be A Machine!, Voyage in Contemporary Art , and With Peggy Guggenheim, Between History and Memory. Miro's Studio : Juan Punyet Miro is the grandson of Joan Miro. Jean-Marie Del Moral wrote several books about Miro, Picasso or Van Gogh. He is also a contributor to magazines such as Vogue or Madame Figaro. Picasso, The Objects : Edward Quinn (1920-1997) was born in Ireland. He lived and worked as a photographer from the 1950s, on the Cote d'Azur, during the "golden fifties" the playground of the celebrities from the world of show biz, art and business. From the 1960s Quinn concentrated his work on artists, amongst them Max Ernst, Alexander Calder, Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, Graham Sutherland, David Hockney. In the late 1980s an intense relationship, similar to his friendship with Picasso, linked Quinn to Georg Baselitz. From 1992 until his death in 1997, Edward Quinn lived near Zurich with his Swiss wife Gret, who now manages the extensive photo archive.
