Federico Carbajal, an architect based in Montreal, creates beautiful artworks based on human anatomy. Though he uses galvanized wire, stainless steel, and acrylic, his works nevertheless exude the essence of life.
Here's how the artist describes his work:
An exploration into the boundaries of space: volume, surface, and line; of the immaterial form and its perception -- its structure and deconstruction. A deep look at the human body, its anatomy, and the appropriation of its symbols.
With the influence of the old masters and the early works of Alexander Calder, to current digital 3-D media and architectural representation, these tridimensional hybrids bring together drawing, architecture, and sculpture in order to create a coherent spatial entity.
Floating tridimensional sketches of the human body are drawn through space with different sheathes of galvanized wire mesh and are assembled and structured with architectural detail.
Spatial sketching allows for the possibility of new representations of images in space, exploring the void and the dematerialization of volume. The physical and metaphysical presence of the human body emanate through a combination of transparent planes and spatial lines.
