The Vastness of space in Carolina Sardi's Landscapes

Landscapes use organic shapes and lines that are engaged in an exploration of the two dimensional space. Using the whole wall, the background is painted and the directional lines, that I use when I work in the compositions, become visible. Landscapes represent for me moments in time, contemplation of nature as form of visualizing the vastness of the space. 

"My art is my way of expressing my world vision. I try to convey maximum of information in the most minimal but essential forms. Although I work mainly with steel, my sculptures and installations have an organic sensibility that reflects my interest in the basic interactions of life. The reference to geometry, natural shapes and the use of positive and negative spaces are a response to the search of a balance between opposites. 

Wall compositions are separated from the surface of the walls with a distance of one or two inches, creating a floating effect in the space that is enhanced by lights and shadows. The blank walls become the medium and support for each one of these installations. The free standing and hanging pieces use the void as the main visual element. Space it’s a medium and transparency it’s always an important factor in these pieces.

Color, or the absence of it, is used to emphasize the strength of each shape and the placement of the shape in the space.

The concept behind each artwork is as important as the image and the space is as important as the shapes that create the whole composition. 
Subjects and messages are open to personal interpretations. 
The interaction with the spectator brings forth multiple ways of reading each composition."
