A quick Q and A with Gozra:
How do you see your own artwork?
It is just the visual expression of my imagination. I use images to ‘narrate’ concepts and visions.
How would you describe your own practice?
The usage of the photographic medium to narrate and express my imagination, opinions and eclectic taste.
Are there any external factors that help you creatively?
I am always inspired for everything I see, read or listen. Even a mere conversation can be transformed into a concept, into an image.
How do you look at reinventing yourself or reflect progression in your work?
Always making sure I am open to the world and people’s opinions and different ways of thinking. ‘If you want to be interesting, be interested’.
What are the most important themes and elements that feed into your creativity?
Creative and interesting people I could be mentally connected with for whatever reason.
Can you describe the creative process behind the work and how it works for you?
Believe or not, the majority of my ideas come to me when I am asleep…I always have a note pad near by to write the ideas before I forget them !.
How would you like your work to be known?
I do not really mind. That is up to the individual that contemplate my work. All is relative. I am expressing my point of view about things, that is all.
Any single wish?
To keep enjoying this bumpy ride called ‘Life’.
Thank you Gozra & best wishes from GFEST team.
