“We’ve been in Calistoga for three generations and we’ve always been part of our community. We’re so happy to be a part of Sausalito too with our tasting room there, “commented Chris Madrigal, Madrigal Family Winery’s 3rd Generation Founder & Vintner. “When we started this artist series program a year ago, we thought it would be successful, and now, 12 months and 13 artist exhibits later, we couldn’t be more proud.”
Patrick Bornemann – Artist Statement
“Color has taken possession of me”, a quote by artist Paul Klee perfectly describes my relationship with art. I assemble and play with color to create harmony, it is my obsession and passion.
I come from a multicultural background and upbringing throughout: Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Africa. What has always inspired me the most is color. I started my career in TV and cinema as a set designer. That propelled me into my art work on murals and then later in interior design. I started painting when I was 14 years old, but began putting a greater focus on my fine art 18 years ago, when I moved to Marin.
I paint what I see, so living in the Bay area is tremendously inspiring to me. The spectrum and change of light and color throughout the day is infinite, which I try to capture and share with you. When I paint, I feel like the director of an orchestra and my canvas is the music.
I am excited to present to you this collection in Sausalito entitled: “Love Letter from San Francisco”.
The Madrigal Sausalito Tasting Salon & Gallery is open from 12-7pm Thursday – Monday, closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the winter, but available for private events. For information, contact Patricia Gatti, manager of the Sausalito Tasting Salon & Gallery at (415) 729-9549 or [email protected]
