The WAXstaff caught up with Ania Catherine this month in advance of our May 8th showcase. We hope to see you there THIS WEEKEND!
WAXstaff (WS): If you could only use three words to describe your work, what would they be?
Ania Catherine (AC): TENSE AND NOT
WS: What part of the creative process do you find most challenging? What do you feel comes easily?
AC: The most challenging part is coordinating schedules, but a close second is the final stretch of creating when you are unable to see what you're looking at anymore, yet need to make sure that every detail from the styling, to the lighting, to the energy through the fingers speaks to your story and doesn't undermine it. Creating shapes comes easily.
WS: Where do you find inspiration for your work? Or what motivates your work?
AC: Pedestrian movements of people I see out in the world, conflict, sex, art (photography, film, fashion, sculptures, paintings, music)
WS: Do you have any secret talents?
AC: Washing dishes
WS: What specific ideas or elements in your work would you hope to receive feedback on?
AC: The degree to which it feels immersive
WS: What’s the last book you read? Movie you watched? Trip you took?
AC: Book: Arts of the Possible by Adrienne Rich; Movie: The Limits of Control; Trip: Morelia, Mexico
WS: Anything else you want to share with us?
AC: Creating shouldn't be competitive, it should be conversational
