Artist Matias Di Carlo

Matías Augusto Di Carlo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1978. His Italian roots are imprinted with a long history in artistic iron smithery. Matias becomes the fourth generation to continue creating with metal and fire, taking it to the level of a sculptural language of his own. Since 2002 he lives and works in the province of Malaga, Spain and in his studio he creates small pieces to large scale commissions.

"The sculpture making process is a paradox that revolves in the exploration of Void through the manipulation of Materea; the dynamics of stretching the illusion of  Matter to its limit of collapse, until its true absolute existence is unveiled; the way in to the perception of new layers of reality.

It's Alchemy that you create but cannot control, and in this philosophy of making, form is born from intuition in the vast field of possibility; a question mark that explores the idea of an unlimited.

Telluride Film Festival | August 29, 2024 - September 2, 2024

Each Labor Day weekend, the tiny mountain village of Telluride, Colorado triples in size. Swells of passionate film enthusiasts flood the town for four days of total cinematic immersion, embarking on a viewing odyssey, blissfully spending entire days in flickering dark rooms. With only an appreciation of celluloid to guide them, these devotees flock to the show, year after year. Why? Blind faith. They don’t reveal the program until everyone lands in town. Yet the Telluride family trusts that a unique experience will unfold.

The Telluride Film Festival is not just a picture show. It is Tributes to luminaries who've propelled the medium forward; it is candid discussions with a film’s creator or the historian who champions it; it is discovering that the person in line behind you made the film you just enjoyed; it is engaging in lively debate with every manner of film lover in the summer sun of a Colorado afternoon, always minutes away from a new exhibition.

BORN FROM FIRE by Matias Di Carlo

A number of powerful phenomena like voltage or frequency cannot be seen by the human eye. Our limited perception as human beings drifts us away from reality. Matias Di Carlo’s oeuvre is multidimensional, handling a truth split in layers - in his works every angle, edge or fold, in relation to the viewer, gives a different form, a different result. Several realities, different from each other, but completely linked to the same object.

Through his creations, the artist explores the dynamics between Void, Māteria and the perception of new layers of reality. For him, his work is a thinking process, and the pages and images in this book will unveil his catalogue of thoughts. Di Carlo has been able to combine the inspiration born in a vast and wild scenario such as the Andean valleys with the ancient techniques traditionally used to shape metals, in a kind of visual alchemy; an alphabet born from fire.
