about the artist's works

The Platonic space of the pure idea serves Carmen Pastrana as a powerful framework to achieve effects of a refined and artificial compositional subtlety, that is clear, but it is also presented as a projection screen of suggestions or indeterminate contexts that the viewer will have to build itself.

Oscar Alonso Molina

Carmen Pastrana's work moves between painting and drawing. It usually uses a neutral and unreal background that acts as an insulator. In most cases, white is the colour you use for backgrounds. Aseptically deposit the different elements and check how, by cancelling the background noise, they are redefined. These compositional amalgams produce paradoxical encounters that frequently function as aggression to the possible. Somehow, these are visual metaphors open to reinterpretation and seek to establish connections between the real and the fictional, without lacking humour, illusion and fantasy.
