Tenderness in his sculptures
Carlos Mata was born in 1949 in Palma de Mallorca (Spain), and is deceased in July 2008. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona and Parijs.Hij searched for the essence of forms and reduced them to their pure lines. At a first confrontation with his work you surprised by the tenderness in his sculptures. It is as if the artist makes the most of the work (animals, people and things) to show us and to let us enjoy that moment. Mata shows in his sculptures see both the creativity and the mystery of prehistoric art: bulls, cows and stylized horses, which show the symbolic meaning of the animal.
