INTERVIEW WITH FIONA McVIE

 

Artist’s statement:

I am lucky to be in the arts, to have travelled the world and met incredible people, and to have a passionate life that is rich in creativity. 

I suppose I like mystery. Knowing and not knowing. What lies between an initial work of art and the finished work is what interests me. Ambiguity and not knowing are a little spooky, but my, what an adventure.

“Entre los Gitanos, no se leen las manos.” Among the Roma people (Gypsies), palms are not read.

“The duende, then, is a power, not a work. It is a struggle, not a thought… The duende is not in the throat; the duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet… Everything that has black sounds in it, has duende.” Federico Garcia Lorca.
