Horacio Cardozo was born in Argentina where he studied Architecture and Design at Buenos Aires University and Philosophy at Del Salvador University. His drawing skills and his admiration for fine arts, especially those of the Renaissance period, led him to explore a career in painting since 1987. His oil paintings display a touch of surrealism and express mythical ideas and concepts as well as philosophical themes. His eagerness to understand the inherent relationship between human nature, the universal order and the underlying reality leads him to create images that attempt to explain that which defies reason. His nude and semi-nude series set in a mystic aura are tinted with a subtle beauty. He has participated in many group exhibitions such as the 3rd Young Art Biennale, 1993; the National Senate, Buenos Aires, 1997 and 2000; and in MAC 21, Marbella, Spain, 2000; among others. Since 2002 Horacio has been living in New Zealand, Australia and Argentina where he works as a Graphic Artist and continues to develop his artistic career.
Title: Standing Nymph
Dimensions (cm): 153×101
Price: US$ 6,000
Artwork Description: In Standing Nymph, abstract and classical figurative elements are combined in a most contemplative work. The background treatment evokes Rothko’s multiforms. The gold and umber tones provoke thoughts of nature: autumn leaves and tree bark. The girl stands in a pensive, almost ambiguous pose; half of her existing in our world, the other half part of another. Her gaze is distant. Her eyes long for moments filled with song and dance. She is conflicted and clutches herself, in search of a kind of safety, as her purity (symbolized by the white drapery) slips away from her bare skin.
