Martin’s Atelier is proudly presenting two gifted artists who master the expression of colors, textures and volumes shown as abstract pieces of art. The way they apply their unique and laborious techniques proofs great talent, attracting the attention not only of art lovers but also the wider public.
Patricia Bernar and Rox Lawson will showcase their most recent art work at Martin´s Atelier, a unique and signatory space in the heart of Ixelles (Brussels), which is the former atelier of the well-known artist Paul Artôt. The original construction was built by Paul Hamesse, famous architect of the art nouveau movement.
Patrícia Bernar is a multicultural artist from Spain who lives in Brussels. She works simultaneously on her paintings and on her contemporary pieces of bijouterie. Both display her abstract style. She participated in a number of exhibitions around Europe: Madrid, Malta, Luxemburg, Paris and Brussels. She spoke in different media about her personal creativity process.
She loves to create textures by working with different layers, creating paintings which are exciting and intriguing, and which lead the public to discover a variety of different techniques. She is fearless in using color as a way to express her mood and feelings, ranging from sparkling gold to the most vibrant colors. We see a clear reflection of her spontaneous and vital personality as well as her clear passion to pursue new artistic ideas. www.patriciabernar.com
Rox Lawson, a Swiss-Argentine artist, was born in Buenos Aires. Fluent in a number of languages Rox had a career in Hotel management, living in Switzerland, Germany, France, Scotland and now in Portugal.
Influenced by the gifted heritage of an artistic family, she masters a multitude of skills in acrylic and oil painting, furniture restauration and even pottery, which she mixes into a unique artistic expression.
She shows a combination of vibrant colors, textures, energy and intuition. The materials she uses are enormously varied: she uses a wide range from Gesso to paper, cloth, sand, cement, acrylics, oils, waxes and varnishes.
When observing her art from close-by, you realize that she was inspired by the forces and colors of nature. Her repertoire shows clear evidence that she experiments as she composes her art by letting her creativity flow freely.
She uses art to channel her abundance of energy in creating her expressive work, building a universe of textures and feelings on canvas. www.roxlawson.com
