Isis Navarro is a Catalan artist specialized in collage and mixed technique, giving free rein to her creativity in each and every one of her works. For this, he uses all kinds of clippings and materials that manage to express what he feels at all times.
Hello Isis, who are you? How would you define yourself?
I am a sensitive woman who always smiles.
Where were you born? Are you still living there?
I was born in Barcelona. I live here, I love my city, although more and more people are thinking about going to live in a smaller and quieter place. Of course, near the sea.
When did you decide to become an artist?
Being an artist was born with me, but for a long time I ignored it. A few years ago I decided to leave my profession as a biologist behind because I felt that I was dying while alive. I had no idea what to do, but it was when I gave myself space to listen to what was inside me that my need to fill my life with art and dedicate myself to this began to emerge.
How would you define your style in a sentence?
Introspective, vital, feminine and delicate.
Your weaknesses? Your strengths?
My strengths; have a very high curiosity and passion for learning new things. Weakness; that curiosity and passion are very volatile and it is difficult to maintain them for a long time towards the same goal.
What would you say makes you different?
What do you find most fascinating about creativity?
The connection with oneself, with the present moment. Forget everything. Focus on something that begins with an idea and evolves, without knowing how, in another direction. It is amazing to see what you are capable of when you stop being rational.
Which of your works do you have a special affection?
Looking for summer, it was the first collage that I made and that I love. One day I decided that this collage was never going to be sold.
What inspires or influences you when creating?My work is completely subjective. He speaks from the abstraction of what I am, what I live and what I feel. Without a doubt, I also need to nourish myself with the work of other artists, other points of view and ways of creating.
A favorite place
The leftover room at my aunt's house in the village. San Cebrián de Mazote, Valladolid.
What would you do if you could change the world?
Be children for longer.
Penultimate question… Favorite song?
"Dancing in the moonlight" I wouldn't say it's my favorite, but it always gives me a good vibe and brutal energy.
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" ("Forget about me") by Michel Gondry.
