Winner's Interview - Daniela Prezioso Einwaller

Please introduce yourself as an artist?

Daniela Prezioso Einwaller, an artist born in Innsbruck (Austria), currently resides in Italy, where she passionately pursues her artistic calling and presents her works to an international audience. Her artistic journey began in 1988 with her first exhibition in Innsbruck and has since taken her through various countries, including Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Art allows her to dream and gives her a sense of freedom. Inspired by Art Nouveau, her works explore the beauty of life, creation, the changing seasons, and the messages of the soul. In her artistic process, she employs various mixed techniques with acrylic paints, oil paints, and gold leaf on canvas to bring her visions to life.

What is your medium and why did you choose it?

I use a mixed technique involving acrylic paints, oil paints, and gold leaf on canvas. I chose this technique because it allows me to explore the depth and brightness of colors dynamically. My methodology involves applying successive layers: I start with a base of dark acrylic color, which sets the overall atmosphere of the artwork. Then, I add suggestive layers with acrylic colors and in some points oil colors, playing with brightness and tonal variation to create depth and dimension. The final step is the application of gold leaf, which adds an elegant brightness and a luxurious element to the overall composition. This combination of techniques gives me the freedom to express my artistic vision in a complete and engaging way.

What was the inspiration behind this work?

I painted "The Revelation of Spring" because I wanted to invite others to share with me the emotion and beauty of this special season, offering them a visual and emotional experience that would bring them closer to the magic of nature and the promise of renewal and beauty it carries. Spring is a season full of symbolism and promises. It's the time when nature awakens after the long winter slumber, bringing with it a renewed sense of life and hope. In the painting, I tried to capture this feeling of renewal and beauty in every detail, from the shades of color to the play of lights and shadows, to the eloquent pose of the protagonist, who gracefully lifts the veil of night, symbolizing the revelation of this spring splendor, highlighting the magical moment when nature reveals itself in all its beauty and vitality.I wanted viewers to not just see a painting but to feel emotionally involved in the scene, to almost smell the scent of blooming flowers or hear the sound of water flowing in the river. I wanted to offer them a moment of respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life, an opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature and reconnect with that part of themselves that we often forget in the anxiety and routine. Ultimately, by painting "The Revelation of Spring," I hoped to create a bridge between my inner world and that of the viewers, offering them an experience that could nourish the soul and inspire a sense of wonder and gratitude for the beauty of the world around us.

If you could buy an artwork by another artist, which one would it be and why?

If I could purchase an artwork by another artist, I would definitely choose something by Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser, the Austrian painter and architect, his paintings were my first inspiration during my teenage years. I find his unique fusion of color, form, and concept extraordinarily fascinating. His works are like a journey through a world of fantasy and alternative reality, where harmony between man and nature is at the forefront of everything. His artistic philosophy and eclectic approach to art deeply inspire me, and it would be an honor to have one of his works in my personal collection.
