"Being An Artist Is A Great Privilege While At The Same Time A Great Responsibility."

An Interview With Artist Getzy.

Katherine Katz for The World Of Art Gallery.

March 3, 2021.


Getzy, a versitile Artist, known for her assemblage art, installation art, environmental art, fine art photography, ink and acrylic drawings as well as acrylic paintings.


Interviewing this Artist makes me realize that she is very humble yet strongly aware of her talent and

skills.


Getzy knows what message she can convey onto the viewer and how she can influence society.

She knows that her role as an Artist is a powerful one and not to be taken in any way for granted.


Getzy's work is mostly spontaneous, abstract. Few of her pieces have been carefully planned out ahead.


She believes that to create you need to find space for it, for what you want to say, for how you want to

express it, in what art genre, in what style or technique. That takes time... Working in isolation helps her

create meaningful and powerful art.


In her art, the Artist focuses on difficult topics that intrigue the viewer and make him/her think. She contributes to the society through donating her artwork to non-for-profits spreading awareness of important and dear to her subject matters.


Getzy, a versitile Artist continuously trying new things, working on her style(s) and

evolving, making us realize and aware of the importance and power of art.

Getzy - An Artist.

What does it mean to you?


Being an artist is a great privilege while at the same time a great responsibility.

Art allows me the freedom of expression, but it also imposes a tremendous responsibility, as through my art I can influence people, I can change them, their behaviour, their outlook on things, I can change the World. That is a very powerful.

As an artist I can convey a very powerful message, I can uplift, intrigue, shock and make people cry.

That is not to be taken for granted. All artists should be aware of a very important role that we play in our society.


Why you love what you do?


How can I not love being an artist...?! It is so much fun, so interesting...New ideas, new art projects.

It is fascinating...

As an artist I work in different techniques and different art genres. I keep working on my own style, I keep improving it, I constantly keep learning new things and evolving...

It is all so fascinating... Never boring... That is why I love what I do... It also keeps me young as it feels like being a student all my life...


What inspires and influences your work?


I get inspired by real life situations, by everyday people, by nature, by the places I visit while travelling and by my fellow artists.

Being an artist is a "never ending story", we come up with new ideas to work on everyday. There is so much to say through art. So much that we can contribute to society. Literally anything and anybody can become our inspiration or our muse.

As an Artist you are known for assemblage art, installation art, environmental art, fine art photography, ink and acrylic drawings as well as acrylic paintings.

Are there any media you would like to explore that you haven't yet?


While travelling to Europe and sightseeing there, visiting art galleries and museums, I was exposed to the work of art of S. I. Witkiewicz and his pastel portraits. They were so unique that I literally fell in love with them.

I would like to try both soft and hard pastels one day and see what I could achieve with that technique.


Do you ever experience an artist's block? What do you do to overcome it?

I do sometimes as I think many of the artists do...Artistic inspiration disappears sometimes only to come back a little later again...

To overcome the artist's block I usually step away from my work for a little while. I either take a walk, read, get a cup of my favourite flavored coffee and if that doesn't help and I need to take more time then I step away from my creation, I search for inspiration online or view books of my fellow artists to get my inspiration back.


Describe a real life situation that inspired you?

A lot of real life situations inspire me actually, but this situation that inspired me is very close to my heart.

Upon finding out that my friend's mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I decided to make a piece dedicated to all women who suffer from it and donate it to a designated non-for-profit. That way "The Broken Cycle" came into existence.

If you could have dinner with any artist, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?

There are so many artists, legends that I admire so much and would be honored to be able to sit at the same table with them and share dinner with, but if I were to choose just one I would have to say that it had to be Claude Monet. I love impressionism...

Monet's painting, "The Sunrise" and "San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk" are my absolute favourite and I actually had their replicas on the walls while studying at a university so that they would inspire me.

While having dinner with Monet, I would love to talk to him about his art making process and get few pointers from the master as to how I could work and perfect my own style if I ever decided to follow in his footsteps of impressionism painting.


What piece of artwork would you like to be remembered for?

I still have so much to do and to work on but thus far I would like to be remembered by "The Broken Cycle," an assemblage that was donated by me to Magnolia Association. Association for women who suffer from oncologic-ginecological illnesses. You can see it at The World Of Art Gallery as

it is displayed there in "Our Donations" section.

This peace is extremely meaningful to me as I decided to create it once I found out that one of my friend's

mothers was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. In order to honor her and all women that go through this illness, I decided to donate it to the right organization to spread the awareness of a disease that kills 240 (k) women a year.
