Kirkuk, April 28 (AKnews) – “A lot of my paintings express my unconciouns and the
paintings of women in large wide unlimited areas represent me the most,”Writer and
Fine Artist Randa Kassis said in the interview by the correspondent of the Independent
National News Agency of Kurdistan (AKnews) “Sardar Zanganah”, adding that she
“succeeded to some extent, where “the Hidden Nakedness” paiting style is registered

About this issue and others she talked in the following interview:
Sardar Zanganah: What can the Writer and Fine Artist Randa Kassis say about
Randa Kassis: I’m trying to stay out of any restriction or prison, and I look hard to
extract individual and group experiments found in different cultures to find a new
humanitarian pattern, and this promotes me to discover the life linked with non
restricted freedom, hence I search for a tool to express what is found in the depths to
discover life through the constant search for knowledge and extensive attempts to
expand the perception.
S.Z: Where do you find yourself more? in writing or painting?
R.K: After I did my best in the field of painting, I’m tending now to academic writing
which reflects in turn my concerns and my serious attempts to understand strange
things. I believe that there are stages in the individual’s life and we should change the
used tool for expression to prevent repetition and to incite our deepest creativity to
contribute in creating a new style that reflects our internal mental side. Years ago, I
began to feel inclined towards humanitarian writing, and my paintings belong now to
the past that helped me to select the ideas and concepts that suit me and helped me
to identify myself, and a lot of paintings expressed my unconciouns and maybe I can
say that my paintings of women in unlimited areas are the most paintings that
S.Z: How did you start painting? to which school do you belong?
R.K: My frequent visits to my brother’s work place pushed me to have this experience
where I started to feel that painting invades my life and my mind. I was always trying
to create a new style for me and I succeeded to some extent, where “the Hidden
Nakedness” paiting style is registered to my name, but I moved away from drawing
gradually where I recently adopted a different tool to express the ideas that give me
sleepless nights through the pen.
S.Z: Do you think that writing is a talent? Is this talent enough or there is an urgent
need to learn other arts?
R.K: I think that all sorts of innovation depend on experience and long search. We can
extract the talents through a clear vision for ourselves. I believe that the essential
condition of creativity is knowing the target hiding behind our desires and choices so
that we can penetrate the ideas to add new things on them, and this depends on the
psychological thirst for discovery, and not feeling full, but taking small doses when
feeling partially with the insistence on the progress and ongoing research and
interfering with the sense of responsibility toward what we had chosen.
