Karlos Cárcamo will present a new series of paintings, sculptures, and mixed media collages that continue his on-going exploration of urban culture, its history, and the social-dynamic impact it has on all aspects of mainstream popular culture.
Adopting a conceptual process similar to the constructed nature found in hip hop music. Cárcamo incorporates its working methodology as a tool to appropriate or “sample” from, a broad spectrum of art historical sources that include, hard-edge painting, constructivism, geometric abstraction, and neo-concrete art. Cárcamo’s unique blend of work straddle the line between form and content while also paying homage to a diverse group of people that include artists Lygia Clark, Ellsworth Kelly, and Kurt Scwhitters, musician James Brown, The Incredible Bango Band and early graffiti pioneers, Pistol 1, Stan 153, Stay High and Flint 707.
The exhibition will run through May 14, 2011.
