Linda Franceschini Interview: Be yourself. At any cost.


Please Linda Franceschini tell us a bit about yourself and your universe?

My Universe is in full contact with Nature and Music. The interaction between these two entities creates a magical flow which blows up on canvas through colours. The result is a picture of my soul in the moment that this explosion happens. Unique.

Were you always interested in art growing up? What motivated you to become an artist?

I have been always interested in all forms of art. I think that creativity is a sort of passport to the deepest expression of what I am. It is the most precious instrument I have to create the right connection between the environment and me. To be an artist means to shape the reality around your way of being trying to give it your own interpretation through actions, behaviors, words, colours, sounds, fragrances. To be an artist is a way to approach to reality.

I approached to artistic world as songwriter at the beginning of 2000. I released my first album called Lynn in 2005 – a work of 10 Italian pop songs written by me with the collaboration of some important musicians of Italian music. I have always been interested in testing my voice through various and different genres and in 2013 a new extemporaneous project calledScarlet’s Walk took place – the EP Transparency (Mashhh! Records) is a sort of trip in electronic synth pop music (you can find it on iTunes). I have recently discovered a strong passion for the abstract acrylic paintings as an exciting and very new opportunity to represent my inner world. The connection between colors and sounds is very important in all my paintings because the process of creating an impacting piece of art work is like composing a good melody. I live the artistic dimension in a total way… walking in a wood, almost naked, embracing the trees, painting my face with the colors of Nature, dancing into the shadows of the leaves… all these experiences inspire my conception of Art.

Where do you derive your influence? Do you have a favorite place or technique that helps you find inspiration?

I derive my influence from feelings. It’ is fundamental to pay much attention to my inner world, in order to capture every single shade of emotions. A good music and a peaceful place help me to find the inspiration to portray emotions on canvas.

Do you have or have had a mentor or other special person to guide you?

I really believe in the power of the Universe. I think my special mentor is It.

 

Your artworks seem beyond reality but is there any real-life situation that inspired you?

There are many real-life situations inspiring me. Love is the most important and prevalent.

Now I am working on small collections of not more than 3 pieces of paintings, trying to creating delicate contrasts and marked strokes.

You can consider these three artworks as three branches of a tree. Each one represents an extension of the deepest part of my soul – three different and significant moods that often characterize the conception I have of reality – three different ways to interact with my own universe, the urge to understand it and to accept it:

Pop Korn – the hope to find the light, a sweet and golden rain that makes my inner flower bloom.. to finally come back to life as an explosion of pop korn

Out of Order – the feeling to be lost in the world, completely out of order, unable to be logical and reasonable

Goldfish & Sharks – the need to be myself at any cost, fighting against all that can be dangerous for my authentic essence

How has your style changed over the years? If yes, could you explain why?

I am at the very beginning of this kind of artistic production, so I am trying to define a style and a personal feature in my works. It is so funny to explore the world of colours that I am very focused on what I am in this moment, even if I am curious about my next evolutions.

 What is your dream project?

Keep on dreaming. Is artistic life lonely? What do you do to counteract it? Almost every experience is cyclic for me. There are periods in which it is very difficult to counteract my creative instinct which explode in a pressing way. I need to be kind and indulgent with it. When this strong push decreases is easier to stay in this world.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Be yourself. At any cost.
