1 – 31 JUL 2022
Studio 162, The Hamptons, New York, NY (United States)
First solo exhibition of Carlos Azañedo in New York.
The exhibition gathers a wide sample of Carlos’ work in large formats. The paintings display two thematic lines in which the artist is currently working: cityscapes and landscapes. From the artist’s point of view, both cityscapes and landscapes are related to each other from a compositional and conceptual standpoint.
For this solo exhibition, the subject of landscape has been particularly studied by Carlos, so the paintings on this theme have a special presence. The exhibition features imaginary landscapes that blend the memories and experiences that Carlos has internalized in his different trips. In addition, the exhibition highlights various watercolors and inks on paper made by the artist in New York City, which try to capture its complexity and urban vitality. In his paintings, Carlos seeks to reflect the natural light and atmosphere of different scenarios through a broad palette of colors. He also aims to capture movement, whether it is from the breeze of nature or the hustle and bustle of the city. Through compositions that invite you to let your imagination run wild, Carlos makes you feel as if you are in an idyllic natural setting or in the turmoil of a vibrant city.
