O-A: What is your art about?
Ivo Alvarone: The subject of my art abstract painting is nature, especially traditional landscape. For that I uses traditional materials, paints and a brush on paper or canvas. In my paintings I try to render movement and life. Everything is captured in a spontaneous dance and brush movement when it meets the canvas.
O-A: Tell about your creative process.
Ivo Alvarone: My work often deals with non-obvious, general issues. One of the most important is the pursuit of unattainable internal harmony. I am fascinated by the inner life of people and my paintings are a reflection of it. They are not figurative compositions. They are studies of symbolism and cognitive mechanisms. Form and ideas are abstract, the emotion and thoughts should come from the viewer. The creation process is driven by personal experiences, altered states of consciousness.“
O-A: What inspires your abstract art?
Ivo Alvarone: Lay hold of light is everything! As a painter, he always remembers the light at places where he was painting. Light is my inspiration. Its elusive quality changes the landscape in just a few seconds. I try to convey this sense of place and time by capturing its fleeting magic. That’s why abstract painting is for me the optimal medium of creation.
O-A: Where do you get their ideas for an abstract painting?
Ivo Alvarone: It’s hard to explain because it comes from the way each artist perceives a landscape. For Ime, landscape is not only trees and hills, but shapes and colors. When painting, I restricts details to basic forms. There is a huge potential of abstraction in every landscape.
O-A: Your creativity is very emotional. How do you achieve it?
Ivo Alvarone: When painting on canvas I do not feel the need to go back and correct. It is an emotional, spontaneous, honest record. I treat my painting personally as an expression of his emotions. An abstract landscape is also about emotions. The basic medium is always light, it creates the atmosphere of the place. Another area of inspiration is the artist’s own emotions. By translating emotions into an abstract landscape, the I tell my own story. The choice of forms and colors reflects my private mood. This is how ”Emotional Landscapes” were created.
