Profile of Gila Paris

Gila Paris

There was a moment in my time in Chicago, language changed into visual language. Words into pictures. The possibilities of photography intrigued me. I participated in my first class “The digital tool for artists” at the SAIC (School of the Art Institute Chicago) to learn as much as I could about digital art. The combination of several art techniques - the traditional and digital - became my medium. The creative process is a kind of dialogue between myself - what I am looking at and the medium.

Photography: My photographs are always a result of an accumulation of facts and influences. I choose a place to work on, I observe life around me, I like to dive in environments watching, listening and feeling …I sit and watch and observe. Then I act. I don’t plan my direction. The direction comes with the situation, respecting technical constraints or violating them, it is pure intuition … this avoids repeating results and keeps me fresh.

Image creation: The photograph is only the beginning of my process. I focus on post production. The image is the source, but a large part of the work is done by integrating other medias into the process – it’s experimentation, it’s composition – a creation , deteriorisation/degradation, destruction in order to recreate or create from scratch on a new image. My material is paint and all media used in painting but especially the digital tool. … I push the spectator to perceive the picture in a different way as usual. The ordinary scene becomes extraordinary. Color & composition are critical.

  • We had a thrilling opening and week-end here in Luxembourg. Thanks to the artists who came to our opening and the “opening-week-end”. It was so great to have you here in Luxembourg and making a trip from Japan – the USA – Italy – Germany – France – Belgium to meet here. WE got connected online… had until now a virtual relationship … and it was wonderful to meet you in real life – an overwhelming experience!We are still waiting for the opening photos by our photographers, it was week-end and moreover Tuesday is a holiday, so I think, they will arrive at the end of the week.Two artists were honored by the CULTUREINSIDE Art Award 2011:Myriam Ziade, Luxembourg-Lebanon: Best jury rating for her video Linked for Good and Bad News and her photo series. Beatrix Jourdan: Public Prize with her input “Time to straighten shoulders”. Unfortunately Beatrix was not present, so we will send you the CI Art Award and the gift by mail.The jury’s comment to Myriam’s work: When we conceived of the exhibition, and wrote several statements about how we interpreted the premises of the exhibition, the idea that social media the Internet and Facebook had been at forefront of change had been at the back of our minds. CULTUREINSIDE is a social network, we have seen the changes that can occur when people can freely communicate, across borders, language, discipline, class, ethnicity. Myriam's images and video capture images that are beautiful, that are art and yet reveal the human scale of change in the Middle East. Her works are reminiscent of George de la Tour, a light casts a glow on the faces of views of a laptop. The joy of her subjects is reflected in that light. Her video is reportage, that has been elevated to art. It is instructive for all of us. The award of this year is accompanied by an artwork: a signed limited edition of “The Unseen Tibet” by Zhao Lishan, Bejing.As soon as we get new pictures we continue uploading in the " Inauguration of CHANGES" gallery.
    Moreover all laureates & finalists receive a free one-year-subscription to the PRO services - the CULTUREINSIDE Promotion and sales service.
