Alejandro Cardenas

Fondamenta Zattere Ai Gesuati, 920, 30123 Venice, Italy

The paintings and sculptures realized by Alejandro Cardenas provide a vision of a post-human world wherein the relationship between human forms and the environment is one of unity and coexistence.

Guided by his own imagination and inspired by a wide variety of influences ranging from Surrealism to Sci-Fi to magical realism, Cardenas immerses himself in the creation of surreal, post-human scenes of polished, gridded interiors populated by eerie, angular figures.

Cardenas‘ unique approach to figuration places his signature humanoids—narrow, wire-frame silhouettes wrapped in colorful patterns of zigzagging lines—calmly reclining, sitting, or standing within minimalist architectural environments. Unlike us, these faceless humanoids appear to lack all sensory organs, yet they are not deprived of their sensorial abilities. Instead, they convey emotion through body language, resulting in a wide variety of suggested emotional expression.
