Spanish artist Carla Cascales has gone from strength to strength since we last covered her work, having completed a nine-meter Milky Way-inspired floating installation in a Soho, New York pop up space, participating in the Numeroventi residence in Florence, and being selected as a finalist for the ArtsFAD awards at the Barcelona Museum of Design. Recently Cascales presented her very first solo exhibition, titled ‘Closer than they appear’, at WE COLLECT in Madrid and in the London headquarters.

The title is a play on the rear-view mirror signs well recognized by drivers in some western countries – ‘Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear’. The series of geometric sculptures explore the fact that as humans, we find common ground on stories passed down through time and culture.

“Although it may not seem like we are all much closer than we think, we connect emotionally with the same stories, regardless of our origin, culture or age. I like to tell stories through volumes, space, sculpture,” explains Cascales.

The works possess a marked minimalist character and combine traditional, natural materials such as timber, stone, glass and metal. As with her previous work rooted in the Japanese art of wabi-sabi, Cascales embraces the irregularities of each material, twisting sheets of metal and stretching textiles across simple timber frames.Click To Read Entire Post
