Pablo Carpio Biography

Pablo Carpio (b. Madrid, Spain, 1979) currently lives and works in Madrid. He has lived in New York, where he developed part of his career, and in other different cities such as Berlín, Buenos Aires and México City. His work explores the material possibilities of painting, developing a unique language, in abstract terms, that transcends the two-dimensionality of the medium, thus questioning its own boundaries. For the making of his works, Carpio previously produces a very dense paint paste, obtaining an almost sculptural-type material, from a mixture of acrylic pigment, sand and limestone, which he intuitively applies on wood panels, using different types of spatulas and trowels. The result is a body of work with a powerful presence whose physicality expands to build highly textured surfaces, of an organic and sculptural quality, based on sophisticated and bold chromatic compositions that take shape in a gestural process between the instinctive and the meditated. The permanent and intense commitment that the artist maintains with painting and specifically with color, added to his original use of materials, gives his artistic practice a radically differentiating element. Beyond materiality itself, questions related to perception, movement and the sensory emerge, throughout a dialogue between the external and the internal, the known and the unknown, the empirical and the spiritual, past and future.

“My work explores the material possibilities of painting, developing a language, in abstract terms, that transcends the two-dimensionality of the medium and thus questions its own limits. The result is works that take shape from a gestural process that expands in volume —thus redefining the physicality of the pictorial medium— to propose a material reality, apart from any type of visual representation, capable of being experienced from the sensory, and that connects with different layers of memory, both individual and collective. My works develop through a constant dialogue between the external and the internal, the known and the unknown, the empirical and the spiritual, past and future. Dualities that keep my work in constant evolution.”
