Garcia Carlos

Spanish Artist

biography

As a versatile creator, his artistic work explores different methods (sculpture, painting, photography, installation, video) from a contemporary perspective through abstract languages, close to Arte Povera and Materic Art, in which I combine tradition and innovation.

Within an abstract style but full of symbolism, Garcia has given great relevance to the material substratum of the work. The marked conceptual sense, where the material support transcends its state and provokes a profound analysis, should be highlighted.

Chromatic austerity is a characteristic element of him work: reducing him palette to a very limited range of colours, based on ochres, blacks and reds, with which to create works of great chromatic contrast and powerful visual impact. 

Garcia is greatly interested in the use and re-use of materials with a strong industrial stamp, such as Corten steel, aluminium, cement and glass, which stand out due to the experimentation, the special, formal and interim analyses, the perception, the theoretical development and the public sphere, as well as delving into new media and technological innovation.

 

His vital, intellectual and artistic inquisitiveness has led Garcia to explore a large part of the world, where, at the same time, he has developed many of my projects, embracing the essence of each territory, to reinterpret it and decipher it in my works. Projects, trips and life experiences, of marked contrast and complementarity, such as stays of several months in Washington and New York, creation and exhibitions in Mexico City, research projects in Puerto Rico, conferences in Tokyo, in situ works creation for collectors in Qatar, projects in Indonesia, etc.

Experiences in Asia, the Middle East, America and Europe are influences that have spread to the Garcia work and creative processes.

 

Private collections, institutions, galleries, curators, critics and the media have trusted and looked into his work, which, from his beginnings, has been characterised as being personal, intense, consistent and on the border between tradition and innovation..
