¨Incarnation¨, the first solo show of Marc Prat in the Netherlands can be viewed at PontArte Maastricht from the 22nd of October until the 4th of December 2016.
Marc Prat, a Spanish artist from Mataró, near Barcelona, paints with an austere pallet on canvas and paper. His work is figurative, but doesn´t reflect reality. It is an inner search translated in series of church and Cloister interiors, Masks and animals which have a high emotional impact when looking at them. For the first time his work is to be seen in a solo show in Maastricht. The 22nd of October the exhibition opens, in the presence of Marc Prat at PontArte in Maastricht.
Marc Prat started painting when he was 24 years old, encouraged by his mother, Rosa Codina-Esteve, Art professor at the University of Barcelona. In Marc’s work we see the same colours and techniques his mother uses, but were her work is abstract, Marc work is figurative.
His topics are mostly spiritual, but without becoming religious. He finds his inspiration in different cultures and believes. In his cloisters and churches, you feel the spirituality of Christianity and the works absorb you standing in front of them. In other series, like ¨Teotihuacan¨ and ¨Kashi¨ you see faces or masks that express serenity and calmness. By looking at these works you see a depth and stillness that forces you to reflect.
From the 22nd of October till the 4th of December : ¨incarnation¨, recent work of Marc Prat, Oranjeplein 203, Maastricht
