At Carlos Tárdez exhibition, you will find a display of his pictorial and sculptural works. In both techniques, you will find symbolic relations that fill the artworks with meaning and reinterpretation of objects and scenes.
This becomes especially obviously in his sculptural works: here he uses a preconceived idea or an object that has a meaning and turns it around. He appropriates and changes the meaning to that main stablished signification. It’s mythology clad in irony.
His sculptures are usually in a small format, made with resin and then painted. Although he also has worked with bronze.
On the canvas he ties to express his main idea directly, the technique and the realism that he uses are carefully applied, creating simple compositions where the space the surrounds every figure has meaning itself.
It is a symbolic figuration with resources that enrich its own iconography.
The title of every artwork reinforce and suggests the idea behind it, however, it is always open to the subjective eye of the observer.
