Boccara Gallery started an exclusive collaboration with a group of selected artists : Anna Mac, Ellen Richman, François Bonnel, Benjamin Ewing, David Stein and Didier Marien. This project started a year ago and we are happy to finally launch the collection of artistic rugs at the Palm Beach Show in February 2020. All the rugs are handmade in our workshop with high definition and attention to detail.
David Stein is an acclaimed British artist, producing vibrant abstract work in both physical and digital media. He collaborated with Boccara Gallery in order to realize three colorful original designs. His attention to technical detail and accuracy results in ‘hard- edge’ geometric paintings that are bold and visually compelling. An accomplished figurative artist, his work has evolved towards pure abstraction, exploring the balance and tension between complementary and contrasting form and space. His work is sought by collectors in the UK, Europe, US , Middle East and Asia. His influences include 20th century Constructivism and Minimalism – fused to create a unique contemporary style.
According to Stein:
“Much modern abstract art is essentially random and chaotic in nature. But to achieve the results I’m looking for, I need to plan carefully and execute meticulously.”
Each piece is designed on an Apple Mac to create the colour palette and experiment with different geometries. “It then comes down to technical painting skills to produce the final work. The exact colour balance and precision of every line, curve and angle are vital”.“Creating these paintings gives me immense pleasure. Each one has a special meaning and I sincerely hope they speak to others the way they speak to me.”
