What is the purpose of art, in your view
To think of defining contemporary art is not an easy task, but when it comes to art… do we need to think. Can we classify or define the work of an artist. Isn’t it much easier if we let loose our body and mind, and let them be carried away by the myriad of stimuli to which we are exposed every day. A delicious food, an exquisite fragrance, a carrying music, a breathtaking work of art… do they need to be explained. We are used to cataloguing the information we receive through a built-in system of thought that we often do not question.
How do you spend your free time
I love to go to the beach. Also to the mountains with my dog and my husband to take pictures, to eat and drink a glass of wine. To do a picnic with my friends. To ride in a bicycle, To spend time with my family.
