Studio visits April 2016

The last week of April was dedicated to visiting studios in Barcelona. On top of our artists in portfolio we have visited a few other studios. We will inform you about this shortly…

Below you find a slideshow from the visits, in which we selected new work. From smaller, easy to order online works to BIG works. Huge canvases from Teresa Pera and Marc Prat you can see on the photos.

Also there is a glimpse of Carlos Puyol´s new studio in Poble Nou where you can see there is room for big bright works.

Enjoy the photos and if you would like to see more, don´t hesitate to call me!

 

 

In the Spotlight

In the spotlight: a new item where we explain 1 work from 1 artist:
The first time we look at a photo made by Jennifer Owens and that I first say in 2012 at Galerie Trama in Barcelona.

It is a photograph in which you see 3 men. They seem to be fishermen but you aren´t sure. They seem to come from a past time and takes you back to another world of old photographs, maybe seen at a grandparents’ home. To me it it lets me think of paintings from the ¨Haagse School¨. The intention from Jennifer Owens with these small photographs is that you try to see what it is you see and that brings back memories. This makes this Photograph and the series it is from so intriguing. The edition of the photograph is 5, of which 3 are still available and 1 belongs to the collection of Banc Sabadell.

Her work isn´t shouting for attention, it is work for the person who takes the time to discover.

Currently work from Jennifer Owens can be seen in Denmark where she is part of the JCE, a biennale traveling 9 countries in the next 2 years.

Fiona Weedon – Falling Light

Falling Light. Werken van Fiona Weedon.

In recent work by Fiona Weedon (UK)you see lakes, wetlands and water. However a startingpoint and end point can´t be detected. You find yourself centrally positioned in the art work. This is not new in the work of Fiona, In her previous work  there are almost see abstract cityscapes of Barcelona and even in her smaller works, such as the series of intimate landscapes, you get to walk through a recognizable landscape itself, but also an imaginary one.

The exhibit “Falling Light” is named after a diptych that will be exhibited at Pont Arte in Maastricht.

Fiona Weedon

Fiona Weedon lives and workes both in England and in Barcelona. She has very successfully exhibited in the United States, the UK and Spain. She holds a Masters title from the Chelsea School of Fine Arts (London) and her work can be found in many private and corporate collections.
