Carlos Muñoz Silva

Artist’s statement

Carlos Silva is a visual artist who works with painting, sculpture, photography, installation and digital media. At the core of his artistic practice is the notion of self-confrontation. Focusing on themes such as trauma, wounding, defense mechanisms and social interactions the artist sheds light on behaviors and reactions that distance us from connection and affection. His work encourages viewers to embark on their own introspective journeys, prompting reflection on the intricacies of human existence.

Through abstraction and a sense of density he creates a place where the viewer can spend time inside the work and have different perspectives of the same piece, not only in sculpture but also in painting. The idea of exploring the darkness is crucial for the artist because that is where the figures are born.
