Lights 2018-2019"All steps to the path of light" Lights is the name chosen to represent the series of paintings created in 2018-2019.
From May through November 2018, I visited the beaches of Miami on a regular basis to watch the sunrise. The first rays of light helped me to deepen my studies about the color palette of the sky and the lights of dawn reflected in the ocean. I was inspired by this beautiful scenario to create Lights. "There is a moment throughout the day where is day and night at the same time". Thanks to the perfect synchrony in nature, when half of the day is light and the other darkness, I was able to intensify my knowledge and experiences into the production of these paintings. The main purpose of this series is to create visual effects between sets of lights, inducing the viewers through art immersion. These pieces are meant to spread light to your daily life. This year I was able to break my comfort zone between techniques and materials used through the creative process. For instance, in the series "Parallel Universe - an invitation to your imagination" the pieces are mostly in black and white acrylic, and India ink. This time, the evolution of the work highlights the prominent presence of vibrant colors, textures and metallic tones leading to a composition that follows abstract geometry, minimalist and futuristic style.
Carlos Figueiredo SCARFIG, self-taught artist, born in the countryside of São Paulo, is a Miami resident.
His floating roots allow him to wander in search of environments that add to his art.
The “traveler” artist brings mixed techniques, op-style works, art and minimalism in his portfolio.
Because of the use of symbology in his art , viewers are lead to a deep reflection.
The author introduces a game between contrasts, balance and strength, voracity and stillness. In his work, he reveals the possibility to present a psychedelic experience while appreciating an upscale art piece.
The artist moves between techniques and universes, from poet to graffiti artist, sculptor and photographer, actor to designer. His goal is, with each new artistic experimentation, becoming the ultimate achiever.
Carlos produces as an inherent need for his existence, his guideline is the spirituality that transcends, transposes, creates, deconstructs and recreates; The divine and the mundane.
His latest works reflect the attention to detail, the use of geometry and symbolism, leading to a concept full of meaning in a minimalist style.
Many of the pieces were made using high contrasts to create optical illusions.
His passion for traveling and experiencing new cultures around the world inspired him to play with colors, lights and life.
The beauty of this collection lies in the challenge of making the viewer feel each of the places portrayed by his work. He uses mixed techniques to create unique experiences full of textures, dimensions, colors and details that allows individuals to enter and experience his world through their eyes.
These key elements are shown in his series Lights, 2018-2019 produced and dedicated to the cities of Miami and Miami Beach.
