Carla Segarra Introducing the stunning original abstracts
Young Spanish artist Carla Segarra takes her reference and inspiration from philosophy, literature, music, but above all from nature. Her early works were landscapes and nature paintings, but these developed organically into abstraction. She spends as much time as possible in the landscape, collecting stones and leaves, tree bark and lichen and is fascinated by the micro cosmos that occurs again and again in the environment. As in the natural world that she emulates, her paintings juxtapose bold swathes of colour with elegant and sometimes elaborate detail, celebrating the harmony that can be found in seemingly disparate, even conflicting elements. Winning the prestigious First Prize in the XVI Desideri Lombarte Painting Competition brought her to the notice of several galleries across the country, and since then her work has become increasingly sought after. Her celebrity collectors include legendary cyclist Alberto Contador and David Villa, one of Spain’s greatest ever footballers.
