Carlos Pesudo

1992, Castellón (Valencia)         

Lives and resides in Madrid


Carlos Pesudo’s work provokes ambiguity and bewilderment. The artist uses elementary forms that run throughout his painting and that end up being reformulated and radicalised in his pictorial process. His plastic research has given way to a complexity of forms and registers. It is a gestural and expressive painting that develops through a process of action and containment.

In his studio, Carlos works from intuition, looking for the unexpected and disturbing form, as none of his paintings are based on a sketch or previous reference. For the artist, the painting is an unknown space that is created as it is being made. A process of invoking an image and a sensation not yet known.

The artist’s proposal of abstraction challenges the codes of representation. The ambiguity of his images provokes in the spectator a questioning of what is being seen. These scenes, dynamic and theatrical, which appear in his work, are strange and at the same time close. They show, almost involuntarily, his fascination for certain forms of nature, especially for those that seem more violent or illogical to him.

Therefore, in his plastic world, the relationship that underlies his painting and some indeterminate elements of the plant world, insects, arachnids or other vertebrates is unconsciously manifested.
