øTheP: Where were you born? Where did you grow up?
GV: I was born near Cologne, in an environment with many forests
into which we have fallen as children frequently and have lived out our children’s fantasy.
I grew up in a splendid large family group.
øTheP: Who (or what) do you love?
GV: I love to protect life, positive community spirit, the people who mean a lot to me, my animals, my home.
øTheP: When did you first discover your creative talents?
GV: I have never discovered because it was always present.
øTheP: Who and/or what are some of your influences?
GV: It is the people which take influential.
Gestures, reactions, facial expressions, motivations, expression of feelings make me curious.
This teachs me to understand the otherness and often reflects myself.
That what I perceive with my eyes, shapes, colors, dimensions, architecture.
øTheP: How would you describe your art to someone who could not see/read it?
GV: Here I would like to recite Erica Van Noy – En Vie Magazine:
“Close your eyes, imagine in a realm where life floats, time seems to stand still and the care of the human world do not excist … provoking mood, symbolizing the emotions of humanity.
While the subjects emit femininity and grace, there is a story behind each portrait which intrigues the viewer.
The subjects are dancing seem through the water, giving the impression that you are glancing into the life of something magical “
øTheP: How do you prepare yourself for a day of working? Rituals?
GV: I take care that my equipment is complet to keep the need for improvisation low as possible.
I try not to give rise to time constraints. Then we can work relaxed.
øTheP: Which is your favorite piece you have created? and Why?
GV: My work ‘lost soul’ is close to my heart because I had many doubts about the statement.
‘LIVING LIGHT’, my most recent work, which is a tribute to nature and corresponds to my fascination for evolution.
It took weeks of preparation
øTheP: If you could spend the day with anyone, living or deceased, whom would you choose and what would hope to gain from the experience?
GV: Romy Schneider. She was a great artist, revered and often misunderstood,
sensitive and fragile, beautiful and deep. I would have like to know her because she fascinated me.
øTheP: What is your secret ambition?
GV: To see one of my works in a prestigious Museum 🙂
øTheP: What is your favorite word?
GV: doesn’t matter
