Pablo Carpio is a New York-based artist born in Madrid.
In 2013 he participated in the Inmigrant Artist Program of The New York Foundation for the Arts. His work has been exibited at the New York Foundation for the Arts (Brooklyn. NY), Local Project Gallery (Long Island City, NY), Loft594 Gallery (Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY), Spacewomb Gallery (Manhattan, NY), Espacio Naranjo. (Madrid), etc. And his work has been recently featured on publications such us The Artist Catalogue, Fronterad Magazine and La Crítica NYC.


My work aims at building an indirect conversation between painting and sculpture, by transforming one medium into another—breaking imposed conventions and pushing the boundaries of painting. Combining the use of traditional painting materials with sculptural technique, I reconstruct and transform the original idea of a painting, reorganizing and transmuting the elements attached to the composition and eventually creating works that escape from the idea of illusion or virtual representation and absorb the three-dimensional space. I am building paintings, exploring the plasticity of the materials through a range of actions such as pouring, casting, drying, cutting, folding, stacking, stretching, hanging, etc. I occasionally add ordinary objects to my compositions. During the process, intuition and improvisation guide a journey to the unknown, sometimes encountering unexpected endings. Through my work I attempt to open a contemporary social dialogue that may help us to understand personal and collective transformations in a world in permanent reconstruction.
