The Boccara Gallery director, Didier Marien, art lover and expert, has succeeded in creating a set of high quality, hand woven carpets in association with artists. This collection brings another vision of the artists’ work. Each creation is unique, a work in its own right. The artists are selected by Didier Marien according to his tastes, his affinities, but also according to the criteria of the art of the carpet. The “artist’s carpet” collection is a great success, very popular with collectors and several foundations. Artists include Anatoly Stolnikoff, Genevieve Claisse, Manuel Cargaleiro and Auguste Herbin.
NEW COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTIC RUGS 2020
In collaboration with Anna Mac, Ellen Richman, François Bonnel, Benjamin Ewing and David Stein
Didier Marien, which has been working with famous American and French artists for years, is pleased to announce that a new collection of artistic rugs is finally ready. The inspiration for this collection is abstract art. Last year, Boccara Gallery started a collaboration with a group of selected artists representing this movement : Anna Mac, Ellen Richman, François Bonnel, Benjamin Ewing and David Stein. To explain this project Didier Marien said, “the artist not only creates the design but at every step of the creation maintains the control over the project. The artistic rugs aren’t mere reproductions of an artist’s paintings but they are artistic pieces in their own right”. This new limited-edition artistic rugs collection will be presented exclusively at the Palm Beach Show in February 2020. All the artistic rugs are hand knotted and manufactured in the Boccara workshop to ensure the best quality and attention to detail. With this new collection Boccara Gallery wants to match the particular practice of an artist with the complexities and subtleties of weaving and creates real works of art.
