Art Madrid'24 – Carlos Andrade – Translucent colors (2023)
about Carlos Andrade
Lisboa, (Portugal), 1968
In the work of the artist each sculptural intervention is a fragment of memory connected physically and spiritually with its previous ancestor. The fragments in time of a spiritual and interior experience are materialized through the marble (I-skin). It exposes the fragility of our condition through the epidermis of the material, in a flux that lives through the rhythm of the movement, through the shape and light, a real and truthful language of the sensitive. The material is taken to the limit of its resistance, so much that tension gives in and the material disaggregates. Then it creates a process where the accident contributes to the aesthetic of the work itself. This partial narrative is articulated and contributes to a self-made path like a progressive construction in the beginning of my works in space and time of each exposition.
