Galeria Nara Roesler is pleased to present at Frieze New York a selection of the latest works by one of Brazil's most celebrated conceptual artists: Carlito Carvalhosa (b. São Paulo, 1961). His recent series consist of oil on wax and oil on mirrored aluminium pieces arranged in multi-panel grid compositions, or displayed individually, relating to an ongoing typology he has developed since the mid-2000's. The oil on mirrored aluminium technique creates a kind of fugitive surface on which the oil painting seems to float. For Carlito, wax has a similar quality but, unlike aluminium, he can use his own thumbs or fists to manipulate the material, creating impressions which he overlays with patches of colour.
