Pablo Carpio

Madrid, Spain, 1979


Pablo Carpio currently lives and works in Madrid. He has lived for years in New York, where he developed part of his career, and in other cities such as Berlin, Buenos Aires and Mexico City. His work explores the material possibilities of painting, to develop a language in abstract terms, that aims to take the physicality of the medium towards the questioning of its own limits. Within a process-based practice, guided by an expansive use of gestural marks, Carpio develops a formal exploration, in
a field of action, in which the boundaries between the two and three dimensions are blurred. Suggesting an indirect conversation with sculpture. The result is a non-representational body of work that pushes the conventional notions of painting into new territories.
