Interview with Mariano Cegna

Where do you get your inspiration?  
Mariano: To create my paintings I am inspired by nature and the different ways of perceiving the world and people that art gives to us. I think the creative process should result in the departure from reality and also take a part  of the  real world which is significant for the artist.

What is it like being an artist in Argentina?  
Mariano: Being an artist in Argentina may be complicated by the lack of attention given to the arts but it is also comforting to know that Argentina has great talent and great people doing great things. I feel that in my country some are not closely linked to the world on the theme of arts I think it's a gradual process that will change over time. 

When did you start painting?  
Mariano: I'm self taught, Iam 35 years old and started painting 15 years ago, learning is a slow process and takes many years of work and study.

What are the major hemes in your work? 
Mariano: The topics I discuss in my paintings are varied from nature and landscapes to abstraction and the human figure, more important than the subject seems to me the plastic approach that makes the observer have diferent sensations. You can paint a still life from a revolutionary approach or paint in a traditional manner, the difference between the two situations  interests me and too the constant search for new forms of expression. The idea is to convey to the viewer feelings whatever the subject of painting from figurative painting or abstractions .My work currently fluctuates between abstraction and figuration and the gradual and progressive deconstruction of the image.
