Profile of Mia Farizza

Mia Farizza

My work is born out of the visceral. An urge to capture those raw emotions is the reason I paint. Quiet, secret thoughts. A vivid dream. The feeling of a stolen glance. They catapult me to an imagined land. Through my art, my thoughts and feelings transfigure itself into an organic world filled with natural structures and forms. Although I don’t set out to do it deliberately, the organic universe in my work tend to look like a vibrant fairytale underwater world, which I find interesting because I do have an affinity with water. A fluid, spontaneous, almost random looking work is what I am trying to create, much like the Universe we live in. The Universe may appear random and chaotic at a superficial level but upon closer inspection, a beautiful & cohesive design story emerges. I like my art to be fluid, changing, evolving. I want it to contain motion and interact with you while you react to it. It requires a high degree of spontaneity in order to keep the movement fluid, which I regard as an essential part of the creation process. At anytime I hesitate, the layers tend to collapse and I have to start again from scratch. I cannot doubt or edit myself during the creation process. Intense focus is key. If I lose the emotion, I lose everything. At this point of time, I tend to favour acrylic as a medium because it affords me the explosive colours that I prefer. My work is multi layered, sometimes more than eight layers will be built on top of one another and acrylic’s quick dry nature aids me in keeping the work and inspiration flowing. My point of inspiration is often like points of stars. Blinding and many layered. However the titles and colour choices do sometimes serve as a jumping board to the narration I have in my head while producing the pieces. What I aim to breathe into my work is a sense of the fantastical and ethereal coupled with a feeling of “newness”. A feeling that it exists in the Modern Now and Ancient Past, simultaneously. I love all things Epic, Beautiful and Tragic. The Mysterious fascinates me, The Ancient World and its Wisdom inspires me. The Modern World excites me. All That is Me is in my art, stored away on the canvas like a secret diary. When you look at my work, you are looking into me.
