Born in 1974 - Spain
biography under completion
Carlos Aires’s work is inspired by personal experience and obsessions; the collision with a contradictory, and sometimes absurd, existence is transposed into his artworks. Aires depicts an uncomfortable reality through beautiful and attractive productions, leading the spectator to a multi-layered understanding to discover a perturbing and politically incorrect dimension beyond appearance.
He gives a semantic turn to established icons and values by re-contextualizing ready-made raw materials, employing fragile and yet charged objects (old vinyl records, paper, currencies), and pointing out a critical position towards contemporary neo-liberal society.
