Jose Romussi Q & A

What is your studio process?

I arrive to the studio and the first thing I do is start drawing, putting my ideas on paper. Sometimes is difficult because I could be all day drawing but I can't get the final sketch. So I put some music and things that help me to get inspired. 

How do you navigate the art world?

I have a lot of friends that are artists. We move in an atmosphere related to Art either in Berlin o Chile so I'm always visit exhibitions of my friends or artist that interest me. I also see a lot of material in the internet. 

Where do you turn for your inspiration?

I take inspiration from my friends, I also like to check the work of other artists, so I'm always checking exhibitions. I also had a lot of inspirations from my travels and the music I listen. Is important for me also nature and everything that is around me.

Are you involved in any upcoming shows or events? Where and when?

Yes, I'm preparing my next show in September in Berlin curated by Manuela Morales. I will be showing some new work with two other artists. 

Is there something you are currently working on, or are excited about starting that you can tell us about?What do you like about your work?

Yes, now I'm working with a new technique closer to loom. I'm also designing new work with a bigger format. I'm also working with my own photographs that I take in different travels or that I create in my studio. 

What do you like about your work?

The liberty that gives me in every sense. I can work from everywhere I want, so allows me to travel a lot and that is perfect for me because I can also take pictures of the places that i visit and then I use them for my work.  I also like that I can share the ideas that are in my head that I develop through my work with other people and they can react to that.  Is not a easy job, sometimes I felt uninspired and I frustrated a lot, but then when things work and I feel a great satisfaction. 

What mediums do you work with?

I am working a lot with photography and  all kind of techniques that involved the thread and embroidery.
