How it’s been a while since my last interview took place, today I’ve reborn through an interview very feminine and very human.
Giselle Bolotin is her name, an Australian libra (sign) full of passion and joy inside and outside her spirit.
Interview by Simona Simionescu
– Hello! Let’s talk about art!
– Shall we begin?
How did you started to paint? It was a desire or a will?
It was in my blood. My father was an artist.
How it was in art university? Or where you studied?
Yes at art College. But I had to unlearn again when I finished.
I had to learn myself how to paint me.
To feel yourself.
Not rules and laws of art. Yes me. To feel me and to paint like me.
Do you paint a perfect woman after you or is a woman without a name ? I mean her identity..
It’s me. I paint me.
She is or them look like a inner of you.
How Giselle’s world looks like? It is about a perfectible woman… always a discovery of her soul and feelings…
It’s all about a woman. She is not running. Her love her life her lack of passion. Her gentleness. Her strength. Her trusting too quickly. Her sense of justice.
Maybe her disappointness or her trust?
Her soul. Her mind. Her desires.
Her believing too much.
Her reality in a fairy tale ending.
Her belief love is a temple. And it will overcome all obstacles.
When you follow the lines – the curves- you sent the touch? As if you.. touch her.
Yes. And only the very tuned in person can feel it .
When u paint yourself.. what part you like the most?
Breasts, hips, bottom and usually no face… The universal woman.
When u choose your colours ..you pick them after the mood or after the game of senses?
It just happens. I don’t think about colour it just happens. Outer with orange hair and inner with soul
Is your image of how you are beside skin. Sometimes that bleumarin looks like night sky and tooks me to a woman which is a fairy and ready to tell a story.
Yes. Yes. I do. And the sad the happy. The lost the strong.
The orange brings you peace and defines you – the warmth woman, full of joy and life. Who sees good. And cares about people more than sometimes gets back.
Yes. And the blue is the melancholy. When I am disappointed. Or dissullioned.
You have the night woman, the middle day woman and the morning woman. As if they are the cycle of the women’s life. Morning- birth. Middle-mature. And the night – old but wise. Who can wait to tell stories
Yes it’s a life story and an everyday story . Yes all of that.
So you see you know it all.
What materials do you use?
Lots of collage from other torn up works and the simplicity comes after.
Or pieces I take my sadness or happiness out on. Paint bits and pieces of colour on them
Throw ink on it.
How do you want the non-artistic viewer to see your paintings? From distance or close enough to the mistery?
That’s up to their own interpretation.
Do you have any message for the viewer? To expect or see or…feel?
No I have no message I just want them to feel some sort of emotion when they look at my work.
Sometimes emotions are very hard to find when people are in rush of daily problems..
Emotions .. to feel is a danger path nowadays… And sometimes a weakness.
And a message for other painters?
Feel free and paint their heart and soul. They have only to paint them.
– Thanks so much Giselle!!
– You’re welcome, beautiful!
