Carlos Balsalobre

Framed in the field of contemporary art practice, my work is the result of a continuous process of evolution, based on my way to interpret and display the reality, in which each project follows the previous naturally, by decantation.

Time and the ways of life have led me to a finding: a photograph means much more than meets the eye and only means depending on each significant that the author installs on the work. This reflection has led me dress as an author, understanding that this is because of their work.

Taking this as a starting point, my reflection on artistic-documentary ambivalence of the photographic medium, trying to overcome the inherent literal documentary photographic process to convert ordinary subjects into artistic material.

Currently this exploration runs through deconstruction of the meaning of an ordinary subject in the signifiers of origin, which allow the construction of a new meaning: the current crisis, the passage of time and ruin left.
