An Interview with Felix Dolah.
Who and from where are you?
My name is Felix Dolah and I am from Mainz, Germany.
How you got into this?
A basic interest in all kinds of art (Literature, Film, Philosophy and so on) made me write about art in a very personal way for more than two years. When I felt things clearing up, I just started to experiment with different materials to see how it feels. At the end I came up with charcoal and water. Those two elements felt damn right and they matched up perfectly to my own unique style of expressing my inner world with all its light and darkness.
What is your driving force?
My driving force might be the hope that what I do is able to help someone. And if it is just one single person that really feels attached to what I do, isn't that enough? I made my experiences and i felt my pain. I want to talk about that. I want to sensitize people to listen to their own pain because every painfull situation in a persons life is a chance to grow and to overcome boarders.
What kind of work you do and why?
My therapist says I do a psychoanalysis in Paintings. I work with real life models. My attempt is to have an honest dialogue from human to human. I talk to my models about myself and I listen to their stories. Out of our conversations there emerges a concept to manifest their stories inside of one of my works. I do that because I belive in the possibility that human beings can overcome distances between one another by having goodhearted diologues about themselves and this one big fascinating game we call "life".
