¨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
Marc will also join is at the Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam from the 27th until the 30th of October, we can be found at stand D5.
For this exhibition we made a catalogue. It is available at PontArte for 10 € and a limited signed edition is available on Artsper for 15,- €.
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.
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 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.
La Volta Celeste
G8/750 stars is the title of the exhibition of Mario Pasqualotto at the museum L´Harmonia in l´Hospitalet, Barcelona. From the 19th of November 2015 till the 10th of January 2016 18 works will be shown for the first time to the public.
Inspiration for the exhibition is the Csrovegni chapel in Padua, Italy. Giotto painted his frescos between 1303 and 1305, showing the life of the Virgin Mary. It´s exceptional ceiling in ultra-marine blue and gold are the starting point of this very subtle modern version of the chapel.
The exposition can be visited from the 20th of November 2015 until the 10th of January 2016. More information can be found in the leaflet (Pasqualotto G8/750)
