Biography

Carlos F. Carrillo is best known for deconstructing everyday objects, exploring frameworks then reconstructing using skill and chance to create works that exude the essence of nostalgia. He intertwines vintage technologies, ready-mades and curbside objects to construct botanical-like sculptures and power plant zones. Suitably so, his installations have been described as “feeling alive”. His works blend social critique and the transparency of the art making process with aspects of drawing, sculpture, and immersive installation. They are driven by formal investigations of light, tension, contradictions, drawing in space and atmospheric qualities of unlikely materials. To date, Carrillo’s body of work resonates with yesteryear-futuristic dreams and subtly suggests to the viewer the importance of logging off and tuning in.
