The LA based "Art Squat Magazine" conducted an interview by Johnny Otto Writer/Director/Producer with artist V. Borchert. "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.

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.

Artist Vian Borchert is interviewed by writer and journalist Inna Logunova for "Fine Art Shippers NYC" which is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, in an article titled: "ARTIST TALK: VIAN BORCHERT AND HER VISUAL POETRY."
I think poetry is similar to abstract art in that it involves symbolism and mystery. There’s a lot of imagination involved, you can play with metaphors, allusions, and a lot of other things that language gives you. And that’s what I do in art as well. I want the viewer to use their imagination and let the subconscious run wild.

Exhibition Opening
"Exhibition Opening" from HappenArt features artist Vian Borchert's latest blue abstracted cityscapes on exhibit at Lichtundfire for the "Summer Blues" exhibition.
It is that similar raw honesty that Borchert also aims to bring forth in this new work. The buildings now stand tall, yet almost crying covered with blue rain telling a different story of a Summer that fell into the blues. However, this overcast summer is so beautiful in its deep blue shades of cobalt blue, indigo blue and “Yves Klein” blue. It is in this primary color that we allow ourselves to fly and swim, fly into a blue sky and swim into the deep blue.
