What and who has inspired your art work?
What’s integral to the work of an artist?
“The role of the artist in society is always changing and evolving.”
What role does the artist have in society?
I think the artist has many different roles, our society is becoming more and more visual so the role of the artist is becoming bigger and more diverse. In our current society there much more space for art on different levels, it is not just in museums and galleries, with the internet art can literally be enjoyed everywhere. This means that many more people come into contact with it and they come up with new ways to integrate art into their lives. In general I think artists make the world richer and have the ability to make people look at their environment differently, but it can also entertain, educate, question, comment, I could go on.
What art do you most identify with?
Currently based in Montréal, visual artist Denise Buisman Pilger is a frequent globetrotter, taking each relocation as an opportunity to explore the world, gathering inspiration for her urban mixed media paintings along the way. She will be at booth F12 on September 12-13 at Trinity Bellwoods Park, as part of the Queen West Art Crawl. You can follow her urban mixed media art on Facebook and Twitter.
