ROIDX Magazine
International acclaimed artist, Vian Borchert's artwork is on the front and back cover along with an in-depth interview spread in the September 2023 issue of French style magazine "ROIDX" based in Paris, France. Borchert talks about her inspiration, the environment, surroundings and creating art trends & waves within the art world.
I don't follow art trends since I make them. When I paint, I look inward, not outward. For me creating art is all about personal expression rather than following others and trends. I am not interested in others' self-expression - I am interested in my own and what comes out of my own world and imagination and my own creativity. For me that is the primal reason why I am an artist to figure me out, reveal my hidden unknown subconscious which is where the creativity comes from and let that stream onto the canvas through the art process of painting.

Borchert was interviewed by LA based magazine, "BOLD JORUNEY Magazine" where she talked about optimism, her art inspirations and work ethics.
My optimism stems from the fact that I am a dreamer. I’ve always been a dreamer ever since I was a young child. I would always dream about beautiful things and imagine things much prettier than they are in real life. I sometimes sit and wonder why I dream that the upcoming events or situations are much better than how they are in actuality. Then, I realize that the hopeless optimist in me seems to take over the whole core of who I am. Being a dreamer and an optimist is much like being a hopeless romantic which I also am. You truly want to believe in romance – you truly want to believe in the good, you truly want to believe that good is awaiting one and will occur.

Art Review City
"Art Review City" publication's great review by Stephen Gambello of the "Lemon Sky" exhibition at Lichtundfire gallery, NYC. "Art Review City" is an art publication devoted to reviewing the best exhibitions around the world. Here is what the writer wrote about Borchert's "Lemon Sky" series:
The impression of the memory of a chromatic scale arranged as an emotional abstraction is what Vian Borchert’s four paintings “Lemon Zest,” “Limoncello,” “Transcendent,” and “Lemon Sky” convey. We might experience an ongoing biography in quarters, as each painting could represent a decade or so of the artist’s life–as we might see this life in its development, in the compositional shape of colors. The yellow in each picture is strategically placed, indicating the level of awareness and wisdom the artist had at that point in life. The yellow, representing the actual true self’s identity, could indicate the location of that true self within the boundaries of the artist’s perception, as manifested within the boundaries of the painting itself.

Borchert talked about what perspective means in her art and life along covering other deep matters. Muse Daily covers well curated selections from illustrious artists, designers & luminaries.
Our perspective, at least mine changes and shifts with time and growth. The core meaning of my art usually shifts and somewhat changes as I grow. Yet, the essence of my art has always been the same since many years, which is to capture the expression, feel, and atmosphere of a certain setting through an abstracted expressionistic poetic touch. I especially love sunrises and the first crack of light that one sees at dawn. I love full moons as well and how they brighten the night skies.

In "ShoutOut LA" interviewed Vian borchert about her latest work, her sources of inspiration, her success story and her perseverance. The interview relays Borchert's love for poetry and literature as sources of inspiration.
There is a lot of growth that has occurred within me throughout this success journey and within my life that I do owe to books and dead authors, poets and artists who I don’t know personally. Nevertheless, their work from literary to visual ones had touched my soul and propelled me to persevere and go forth... My favorite poet of all time is Langston Hughes, especially his poem “Mother to Son”. Langston Hughes’s poetry that embodies hope speaks to me like no other. I find poet Mary Oliver’s poem, “Wild Geese,” to be one of my favorite poems and it is very inspiring to me.

"Art Squat Magazine" is dedicated to artists making waves in the artworld from around the globe. The in-depth interview conducted by J. Otto asks the artist numerous questions from her beginnings to her inspiration and future plans.
Putting in the years and creating a huge and strong body of work was the norm to be considered an artist. I was educated under the old school beliefs that "Pain" is essential in creating a "Painting". And, to be honest, this is one of the main reasons why I ended up an artist and I went to art school, to help me navigate my pain into paintings. Art was and still is till today a visual language for me to bring forth what is within me onto the canvas, be it joyful thoughts or melancholic ones. My life's experience is transparent and transmitted onto canvas so to speak, and painting is a vehicle for me for that transportation.

TPM Interview
Canadian journal 'The Purposeful Mayonnaise' (TPM) featuring an interview with artist Vian Borchert where the artist talks about sources of inspiration and what regenerates her. TPM is a literary and art journal that features creative work of artists and writers internationally.
I don't actively search for inspiration, it simply occurs without effort. I believe this is due to the fact that I was born with a natural gift/talent, and I am a highly creative individual. Thus, inspiration comes to me effortlessly sometimes in the least expected matters. I could be simply driving and I would look up and see a source of light coming through the trees while waiting for the traffic light to turn green, and just that simple light that caught my eye through the branches can evoke one idea leading to another.

Fine Art Shippers
Fine Art Shippers NYC published a review about Borchert's latest mixed media collage work for the NYC's Lichtundfire gallery "Refracture - Visual Realignment" exhibition.
When looking at the paintings by Vian Borchert, you can see the artist’s distinct style in each piece. Her artwork always carries a deep personal meaning and is connected to the various experiences the artist has had throughout her life. Borchert’s artwork is full of geometrical shapes. It seems as if when entering the abstract space of the artist’s canvas, they go through a filter that not only alters their form but also puts them in a new context. And just like the title of one of the pieces – “Restructured Perspective” – this is where new points of view arise.

"Voyage LA" a magazine that highlights the best, invited accomplished artist Vian Borchert for this wonderful interview titled "Rising Stars: Meet Vian Borchert" where Borchert speaks about her art journey, practice and origins along with her love for nature and the ocean.
In a way, I joke and say my early journey is similar to the one of famous writer Franz Kafka where he was an insurance clerk by day while at night, he wrote his “Metamorphosis” novel and masterpiece. Nevertheless, despite the fact that I am a person of multi-talent, I felt that the 9-5 desk job was suffocating to the creative free thinker of a person that I am and to my sense of identity. Eventually, the artistic nature within me took over and I left the finance world to the fine art world.
