Art Madrid'24 – Mario Valdés – Claro en el bosque (2021)
about Mario Valdés
My name is Mario Valdés, and I am an artist and a medical doctor. I am focused on studying the relationship between the human being and their environment through a series of sculptures constructed with glass, photographic images, and charred vegetal supports. My work with space, form, and color generates a dialogue between the transparent and the material, creating intimate environments that invite reflection on the nature of reality. Based on these principles, I carry out artistic research to represent the vulnerability of our natural environment and the delicacy of our mental health using glass and natural elements as fundamental materials for my pieces. Under the concepts of "Fragility and Beauty," I build series of objects and artistic installations in which I explore the conceptual possibilities of these materials, understanding Fragility as an intrinsic characteristic of our reality and Beauty as a tool for connection, knowledge, and healing for our world and ourselves.
