Latin American Contemporary Art (LaCa) Projects is pleased to announce the opening of The Other Side, a first-time collaboration with Uruguayan artist Eduardo Cardozo beginning on September 8, 2016. In his LaCa debut, Cardozo gracefully integrates figurative and abstract paintings, depicting complex and familiar natural imagery that makes each piece universally accessible. His compositions exhibit layers of subdued lines, forms and colors, which all contribute to a weathered appearance characteristic of the body of work. Cardozo’s abstract series suggests the residue of human presence, implying a depth that transcends singular perspective. Likewise, his figurative series evades the constraints of defined references, instead focusing on the transformation and spontaneity of its vaporous subjects. The result is a collection that embodies Cardozo’s stunning ability to transfer the soothing atmosphere of his paintings to their subjects.
Eduardo Cardozo is a painter currently residing in his birthplace, Montevideo, Uruguay. After graduating from the National School of Fine Arts in 1990, Cardozo traveled to Europe studying in France, under an award by the Paul Cézanne Salon, and Italy, under Luis Camnitzer, esteemed printmaker and founder of New York Graphic Workshop. Both experiences matured his artistic process and scholarship facilitating numerous subsequent exhibitions, notably at the Museum Nacional de Artes Visuales in Uraguay, Praxis Gallery in Buenos Aires, the Museo de América in Madrid and the Cervantes Institute in Barcelona. As a result, Cardozo has amassed a number of awards and recognitions, an achievement that merely formalizes the talent immediately evident upon interaction with his work.
