Carlos Edwards

In his abstract work, Carlos Edwards produces a conception of the world as a reality made up of dualities and oppositions. The use of stones found in rivers, eroded by time and water, contrasts with the rigid and solid materiality of the stone. The artist works the stone and transforms it into a fragile piece, where elements such as water and wind are part of the work. His sense of space is defined by the various intersecting planes in the formal composition of the sculpture, which is built by the organic history of the stone and the intervention of the artist. Carlos Edwards’ sculptures are dynamic, powerful and constructive where the geometric rigor is overcome by the empty spaces that are also part of the construction of the sculptures. These spaces of silence are “the presence of the formal absence” in the words of the artist.The sculptor’s work explores the concepts of time, space, matter and spirit.
