Drawings – Patrick CARRARA…Live Auction

Born in Nice in the southeast of France, I began my career in visual arts in Paris studying at the Fine and Graphic Arts School.

I then crossed Sahara and the Americas, always traveling light, but never without my briefcase in which I carried paper, colored pencils and pen.

I returned to Paris to establish myself as a painter and illustrator before moving to Brooklyn.

In “Gardens of Silence by #”, a series I started 7 years ago, I use graphite on Magnani paper.  I more recently started a new series, “Appearance by #”, using black ink on Mylar. The works presented at the Gala are another technique, using ink and watercolor pens on Mylar.

Two years ago, as I began to work with grids and geometric patterns, besides the graphite on paper, I reintroduced the colors, experimenting with transparently opaque primary colors– applied with a minimalist approach that reinforces both the geometric shapes and blank spaces in the work. I find there is a meditative beauty and silence in these geometric abstractions.

Works present in numerous collections worldwide, private, corporate and Universities:

Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX
