About Carlos

“Solarium” circumscribes in an exemplary way what was referred to above. The artist split a piece of a log of wood in two parts, recreating two worlds with different environments: one nocturnal; the other diurnal. Each one of these environments is inhabited by different lifestyles. In the diurnal, solar environment, small figures represent a couple lounging on two deckchairs placed on a lawn, enjoying the sun in a relaxed, laid-back way. In the nocturnal environment, another couple (presumably farmers) toils the soil after dusk. The first world lives in leisure; populated by light and happiness. The second world lives in a sombre silence, off matter and labour; off a contained suffering which seeks in the horizon the hope that seems to have been extinguished.
