Kristina Kanaan: ART HAPPENS


Since December 2013 up to September 2014 Kristina Kanaan is setting up her own works in progress inside the restaurant Il Viaggio, Ascoli Piceno.

Her intention is to involve visitors in the visual process.
The artist places natural raw materials on site where finished works are already on show.
Kristina Kanaan works in an extemporaneous way, and for most of the artworks there are no pre-conceiled  ideas.
The exhibition expresses her personal intense experience as she lives in symbiosis with the materials and the images she meets and discovers.

Her paintings and sculptures are strongly inspired by the sea. They communicate the sounds of the waves, they speak the language of stones, sand and wood, and they reflect the light of glass fragments.

The artist’s roots come out in a mixed-media painting started in Veszprem, Hungary, mixing soil from the locality with powder of travertine marble from Ascoli Piceno where the work will be finished. A sculpture created at a symposium in France consists of a trunk from Germany combined with Murano glass. This kind of work echoes her vital and essential experiences.

Michel Schmid

I was born in 1945 and as a child I spent a lot of time painting and drawing.
At the age of 11, I saw the film “le mystère Picasso” and this movie was an impression which influenced my later style.
As a teenager I wanted to follow an art course, but, being an obedient son, I became an electronic engineer.
Except for a short break of a few years, I continued to draw and paint while I was doing my technical work. In the late ’90s I devoted more time to painting than to my professional work. In my studio in Geneva a thorough research in colour and design brought me to the third dimension, and this initiated my interest in sculpture.
In 2004, when I retired my wife and myself moved to Haute-Provence and I started working with Iron.
In 2008 the sculptural work became so important that I had to stop painting. Since then, I have been working almost exclusively with Iron sheet, formed either in a hot or cold way and then welded. I like this material for the constraints it implies, being cold, sharp, sometimes dangerous, but at the same time allowing the building of warm and sensual shapes.
Most of my works are rather abstract, in the sense that they don’t represent anything but rather suggest and transmit emotion. Most of the time, the emotion has its source in a shape thought, dreamt, or felt. However, the source can also be a social or political event.

Kristina Kanaan is an artist working since 1988 between Munich, Germany and Le Marche in Italy. She specializes in sculpture, installation, painting and design. She has studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Macerata with Prof. Paolo Gallerani from Milano.

She is co-founder of the cultural club “Il giardino erboso” in Monsampolo del Tronto Italy, organizing art courses for children, various art events and exhibitions.
