Biography

Carlos Cesar Alves

 

Artist Carlos Cesar Alves (b. Brazil, 1964) is as enigmatic as a painter as he is an individual. His artistic influences stem from European Modernism and American Abstract Field Paintings, mainly seen through the large expanses of color that cover great parts of his canvases. Among a plethora of styles, the Dada movement also largely influences him, as his paintings employ ready-made objects, collage, and assemblage with strong references to Industrialism.

 Carlos’ background stems from both finance and business, resulting an author whose mind is mathematically bound and full of dichotomies. Carlos is also colorblind: His eyes lack the color-sensitive pigment in the cells of his retina, making him fully colorblind. Nevertheless, the overwhelmingly colorful works of Alves tell a visually rich narrative through pigment, shape, form, and polished textures. For Carlos, the canvas serves as both a mask and a magnifying lens, allowing him to choose when to reveal important elements of both himself and his world through mark making and layers of paint: “When I paint, I am free from restrictions, boundaries, and rules disappear as my colors and shapes form images. At the same time, I also demand the highest level of perfection from myself when I utilize resin, ink, acrylic, pigments, metal pieces, tapes, wires, paper, nails, glass, wood, and any material that I may manipulate into becoming art. It brings me joy when my art is touched and examined by the public.”

 As of 2016, Carlos Alves has had over eighty exhibits both nationally and internationally.

 

Artist Statement

Carlos Cesar Alves

 

I seek to utilize shapes, forms and polished textures, to communicate a story, and to deliver a deeper message.  To me, the canvas serves as both mask and magnifier, allowing me to reveal important elements through brush strokes and layers of paint, or to hide them. It is a reflection of my inner world, and my desire to speak to the universal dichotomies within human nature. I see these as opposites that vacillate between moments of creation and demise, resulting in a visual synergy more potent than the original impulses.

 

When I paint, I am free from the limitations of everyday reality.  Restrictions, boundaries and rules disappear as the colors and shapes form images. In this way I can utilize, resin, ink, acrylic, pigments, metal pieces, tapes, wires, paper, nails, glass, wood and any material that allow manipulation to make art that demands to be touched and examined.

 

While the exploration of these materials often feels like play, and I am learning as I go, demanding the highest level of perfection from myself. It is my hope that by doing so I enable the viewer to experience and to share the joy that I feel while creating these works.
