The Interview

Interviewer: Thank you for joining us, Tamara. Your upcoming exhibition, "Poetry in Grey", has generated a lot of excitement. Can you tell us what inspired you to create this series?

Tamara: Absolutely, and thank you for having me. "Poetry in Grey" is inspired by my lifelong fascination with ballet. I've always been captivated by the grace and strength of ballet dancers, and I wanted to capture that in my medium, which is graphite drawing and oil painting. The monochrome palette really allows the subtlety of movement and emotion to shine through.

Interviewer: That's fascinating. How do you feel your background as an art dealer and investor has influenced your work as an artist?

Tamara: My experience in the art business has given me a unique perspective. I understand the art world not just from a creator's viewpoint but also from a commercial aspect. This dual perspective has helped me be more experimental and bolder in my artistic choices, knowing what resonates with audiences and collectors.

Interviewer: Your use of graphite is quite distinctive. Why did you choose this medium for your ballet series?

Tamara: I find graphite to be incredibly versatile. It allows for a range of expression, from the softest grays to deep, intense blacks. This range is perfect for depicting the fluidity and drama of ballet. Also, the simplicity of the medium helps in focusing on the essence of the subject without the distraction of color. I also like to include brushstrokes from oil paintings to create unique pieces.

Interviewer: As an artist with an MBA, how do you balance the artistic and commercial aspects of your work?

Tamara: It’s a delicate balance. The MBA in me focuses on the marketability of my art, the trends, and the business side of things. However, the artist in me is always driven by passion and creativity. I try to merge these two aspects by creating art that is not only true to my vision but also has a place in the contemporary art market.

Interviewer: Finally, what did the  visitors took away from your exhibition at Violet Art Gallery?

Tamara: Visitors experienced a sense of connection with the art. I wanted them to feel the emotions and the stories that each piece tells. My ultimate goal is for viewers to see ballet and my interpretation of it in a new light, appreciating the beauty and complexity of both the art form and the medium I’ve used.
