  1. Carla is an independent designer and artist who lives and works in Barcelona. Her work is based on finding beauty in imperfection.

Sculptures in metal, glass, neon, and wood; color blocks on canvas; paintings. Her work tries to capture volumes, movements, and textures with different materialities. Like those pieces in glass, inspired by the Mediterranean Sea, where the movement and fluidity of the water are present.

References to the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe appear in metal sculptures.

The spiral and organic movements, a constant in Carla’s work, have a direct reference to ‘Ratto di Polissena’, white marble sculpture located in the famous Loggia dei Lanzi, in the Italian city of Florence. The artist made a specific piece in walnut wood inspired by this work during her residency in numeroventi.

“Femininity” and “minimal” are two concepts with which the artist plays in her works, aware of her place as a woman in contemporary art.

In addition to performing works of art for exhibitions and installations, Carla produces pieces for architectural spaces, interior design projects and selected brands.
