Carlos Alfonso

He is a visual artist interested in anecdotic, orality, and in multiple narratives that can be drawn from abstraction and speculation. In his practice, the pictorial is considered a way of intervention that is articulated with other media. His representation power is not limited to the creation of an image, but rather opens possibilities for dialogue and incorporation with other frameworks of interpretation, where sculpture, text, cooking, audiovisual and editorial resources are part of the processes. This has led him to collaborate with other people in different contexts, as in the Flora ars+natura residency (2019) where his study was extended to the kitchen as a space for experimentation around food and hospitality, as a result of this experience, the book Mundos Mutuos, la Cocina Como Taller (2020) was published in co-authorship with the anthropologist Cristina Consuegra. She currently lives in the countryside, tries to grow edible plants, and sometimes makes adobe ovens and sculptures, which are treated as pieces to be activated through culinary encounters around the fire.
