Carlos Sagrera


Estancia n5 - by Carlos Sagrera

Estancia n5 | 100 x 100 cm | Acrylic on Canvas | 2014


Der 1987 in Madrid geborene Maler Carlos Sagrera war bereits 2014 im Leipzig International Artist – Programm in der Spinnerei eingebunden. Er kehrt 2015 in die liebgewonnene Stadt zurück, um hier zu leben und zu arbeiten.
Nicht nur die künstlerische Nähe zur Neuen Leipziger Schule zog ihn zurück, das Lebensgefühl und die Mentalität der Stadt haben wohl Eindruck hinterlassen.
Dem Werk des Künstlers eigen ist die Porträtierung von Menschen über Orte. Das Selbstporträt über den Atelierraum, die Charakterisierung seiner Umwelt über die gewachsenen Räume und Strukturen, gelingt Sagrera durch feinsinnige, aufmerksame Beobachtung.
Carlos Sagrera studierte bis 2011 an der Faculty of Arts and Communication, European Univerisity of Madrid und hat zahlreiche Ausstellungen in Spanien und Leipzig.

I´m interested in issues such as time, traces, what remains after our passage through spaces we inhabit, in what we hide in own spaces, in those objects that are stored losing their practical sense, (becoming catalysts for personal and collective memories), the “domestic weather”, all kind of common and own actions we take every day, private behaviours...all captured by the arrangement of objects in the reconstructed scene, the use of the colour and lights, textures and marks of the painting process, learning an academic painting style and mix it with blurred objects as “clouds of memories”.
