I believe that people tend to relate to art when they are able to make a personal reference, which helps them understand their nature. Therefore, I consider my pieces as a metaphorical mirror, which reflects the relationships between memory, identity, and the object.</p> <p>Only recently have I decided to shift my attention to the relationship of the identity and emotional expression. It came as a natural continuation, after giving so much focus on objects and memory, to finally dig into some restrictive inner parts. My latest piece was a neon sculpture commissioned by Nike that showed the importance of inner strength, persistence, and progression. I was inspired by the Olympic &amp; World Champion in Pole Vault, Katerina Stefanidi.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180618080445-anna_fafaliou.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;">2018, Neon, Commissioned by Nike</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>An artist&rsquo;s responsibility should not be to rely on what has made them a success. The importance of making progress and the willpower for communicating your work to the public is a key element. You have to be clear on what it is you are conveying&mdash;otherwise it is just more stuff in a room. Being an artist gives you all the freedom of experimentation, failure, and success you might ask for; so, in a way being creative, innovative, and progressive are the three key words for me.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180618080425-20170106064938-IMG_1705.JPG" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Torso</em>, 2016&ndash;17, Plaster cast</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>I don&rsquo;t think it&rsquo;s the greatest thing I ever done but it means a lot to me on my many levels.

This week we seek answers from <a href="https://www.artslant.com/global/artists/show/209776-sofia-donovan" target="_blank">Sofia Donovan</a>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are you trying to communicate with your work?</strong></p> <p>The place of investigation of my work is always human nature in its purest and most unconscious state as opposed to the artifice of civilization. My artistic practice interrogates the psychological interior of a biological and transitory body. I am interested in the passage of time, the moment in which the form is about to precipitate itself in the irreparable process of dissolution, the moment in which the form no longer responds to its form.</p> <p>My most recent searches are motivated by the fascination in the destructive potentiality of nature and time. In how the remains of the past become symbols of transience, permanence and fall, sunsets, the interior of the human being and loneliness. Symbols by antonomasia of the transient, the ruins are the metaphors that interest me in this stage. The ruins in relation to the individual and personal memory of the passage of time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180604150310-ruins_charm.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Ruins&rsquo; Charm</em>, 2017, Glazed ceramic</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>An artist&rsquo;s responsibility is to be honest about his work. This means that it should be deeply rooted into his/her interests and concerns and truly expressing&nbsp;those interests to broaden the public&rsquo;s perception of life in all its ways.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>From an art perspective, the greatest thing is the next work I am planning to do!</p> <p>The greatest thing I ever made is my two children. It sounds a foolish thing to say, but molding another human being emotionally and spiritually is the greatest work of art one can do. It is something so dynamic, so dialectic, that I find it amazing. It is a work of so many variables&mdash;one works on them and on oneself at the same time.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180604150235-20171011194348-_DSC2137_web.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Silence before downfall</em>, 2017, Ceramics</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:</strong></p> <p>It would probably be a huge installation involving gigantic ceramic sculptures and architecture.

I am looking for moments that do not matter much in plain view, but I simply cannot forget them. It does not matter if I am awake, dreaming, or imagine it. Everything is happening just now, and there is no space or time. Music and water are important. A clear idea is an art. Everything that is simple is good.&nbsp;</p> <p>I try to be raw with the material. I get the hint, then I think, write, and do. I examine the concept through various media as far as I am able. Once completed, the work has a sense of simplicity about itself. It bears the basic simple, raw, and funny information. When looking at it, it has to be seen as it was done &ldquo;just like that.&rdquo; I show what you see. There is no story behind it.&nbsp;</p> <p>The image is the shortened duration of piece of art. Long-duration art is manipulated and too far from the real now/moment. Because there is just now. Endless things, procrastination, and enjoyment, yet staying prepared and moving towards a goal which resembles rebirth: how we live now and in the developed future.</p> <p>Life is a play and then you go to sleep. I do it constantly and pick myself up to improve and stay and lust. Do it easy!

My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color, texture, and architecture of the work. And sometimes through an emotion or through a state of being&mdash;or even sometimes through the title of the work.</p> <p>The most important thing to me is to make sure that the work is not framed in a single perception. That way, the visitor who observes the work will have the freedom to do and live his own interpretation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180416135440-20151029205233-abstractionno.3_annemariegiroux.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>D&Eacute;RIVE no.3</em>, 2014, Oil and mixed media on canvas mounted on wood</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&#39;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>I cannot answer for other artists. Personally, I believe that my responsibility as an artist is to create projects that lead to reflection, to introspection. I must take a position and communicate my own interpretation of the world in which I live. Hoping that this will engender a dialogue...</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not):</strong></p> <p>I have to mention two very important moments.</p> <p>First one is when I was about 18 or 19 years old. I still did not know what I wanted to do or become. I decided to take a 35mm photography class in my school. I started to explore my city, Montr&eacute;al. I took a series of snapshots of urban activity. When this photograph appeared to me in the darkroom, I did not know it yet, but it represented, in a way, the very beginning of my artistic approach.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180416135340-Studying_photography___annemariegiroux_1983.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;">Studying Photography,1983</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The second one is during my BFA at Concordia University. I did a study in my sculpture and mixed media class. This study opened me up to the medium of sculpture as well as the medium of contemporary dance, which I was involved in for almost fifteen years before focusing my practice on painting and sculpture-installation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180416135247-Woman_sitting_on_a_cafeteria_tray._Study_1988.___annemariegiroux.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Woman sitting on a cafeteria tray</em>, Study, 1988</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:</strong></p> <p>Something I dream to do is to find ten big, multicultural cities around the world. Then I would do an open call to find people (seniors, adults, children) who would like to participate on my project. In each city, I would create a huge work on paper with the prints of one hand and one foot of each person in the groups of people I would have selected. Under each hand and foot print, I would let them write their first name. After, I would find a building big enough to exhibit the work on paper which would be so long that it would cover each floor of the building.
