Hey , hey , hey , LandEscape ! I ’ m so heavenly happy to be here with you ! And yes , you ' re right , I ' ve got master ' s degree in Architecture . Honestly , I used to think that getting a degree in architecture may be the wrong path , because I have never felt that it is my true passion ; that said , I recently realized that there are no mistakes in life and everything that has happened has been a significant and valuable experience which allowed me to become the person I am now . I started to understand that there are a lot of useful skills I gained during that time . The most important one is the ability to turn an empty space into an astonishing world . I mean , when I ' m standing in the middle of a space , considering it for a potential art show venue , I don ’ t just see walls to hang paintings , but a space in which every detail can play its own role and become a part of a story .
You are a versatile artist and your practice includes a wide variety of media and disciplines : ranging from paintings and drawings to sculptures , installations and objects the kaleidoscopic nature of your practice shows an organic synergy between a variety of expressive capabilities . Before starting to elaborate about your production , we would suggest to our readers to visit http :// www . stacylovejoy . com in order to get a synoptic view of your multifaceted artistic production : while walking our readers through your process , we would like to ask you if you have you ever happened to realize that such multidisciplinary approach is the only way to express and convey the idea you explore . . In particular , how do you manage to merge contrasting materials into a cohesive whole ? What kinds of connections do you make in between the materials ?
This is an interesting question : I ' m definitely a multifunctional artist who is playing with everything at the same time . But the process of creating art is too magical and ethereal to describe it in words . I would rather say that I ' m trying to prohibit my brain from managing the creation process because the brain actually knows nothing about it ; its main task is to be quiet during the process and allow my soul to express everything it wishes . Sometimes , I cannot foresee or understand what ' s going to happen in the next second or how all the things can possibly be merged together until the art piece is actually finished . Answers come spontaneously from places I hadn ' t even expected to get them , and I tend to love the craziest ones . So , if next time I realize that I need to spin around my own axis wearing a hat made out of pine nuts and singing the songs of sea birds , during my art-show , that ’ s what I will do .
For this special edition of LandEscape we have selected The Radiant Thread series , an interesting project that our readers have already started to get to know in the introductory pages of this article has at once captured our attention is your successful attempt to produce a dialectical fusion that operates as a system of symbols creates a compelling non linear narrative that , walking the thin line between conceptual and literal meanings , establishes direct relations with the viewers .
