Karen Aqua Gallery Reception for Artist Adriana Prat

the public is invited

Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 6:00pm

The public is invited to a reception on May 25 from 6-8pm for painter Adriana Prat, whose work is currently being exhibited at CCTV's Karen Aqua Gallery. The show will be in the gallery through June 23.

Adriana was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she studied science. Once in USA, Adriana reinvented herself through art. With a newly discovered passion for oil painting, she studied mostly at the non-academic yet structured Cambridge Center Studio School, at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Adriana, however, also considers herself self-taught by her continuous drive to experiment diverse media and art-making processes: oil, acrylic, sculpture, printmaking, assemblage, and more recently linking her interest in writing with the painting activity.

Adriana lives in Cambridge with her family but her heart is divided among a few cherished places she also regards as “home” thanks to her travels, which she finds essential for the fullness of her life experience. Much like Adriana, her artwork has been and is featured in both Argentina and Massachusetts, from open studios, museums, galleries to alternative spaces.

“I embrace art-making like meditation: an instant in time-space where only color, textures, and the physicality of the painting materials exist. I often incorporate handwritten text from travel journals or impromptu poetry that I use as foundation to explore further “mind-journeys” on the canvas surface. The text frequently remains hidden or illegible in my final work as a metaphor of our mind secrets. I like to think of my art as bold, intriguing, sensual, and evocative of the boldness of Latin America’s colors and warmth.”
