In the Kirmser & Clarenburg Galleries: Pablo Diaz Carballo
Pablo Díaz Carballo, born in Caracas, is a renowned international contemporary artist with a 30-year career.
In 2014 he was forced into exile with his family to the Dutch province of Willemstad, where he stayed for five years. As of 2019, they are residents of the United States.
His style has been inspired by artists such as Giotto di Bondone, Rembrandt, Duchamp, Andy Warhol, J. Beuys, and Joseph Kosuth.
He has focused his work on a concept that he calls “The House of the Inner Being” which explores the state of our house or intangible inner body and is reflected physically in the form of structures, windows, doors, architecture, and engineering of the mind.
In these three years, he has made 90 works of art, acrylic paintings on canvas, based on the theme of flowers and bottles. These works are collected in three catalogs under the concept of Flowers and Freedom, which are related to the experience in exile.
