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.

Where were they going and did they ever actually arrive?
This painting is a reminder of the fact that our lives are but a journey. Perhaps this red boat serves as a symbol of man’s everlasting and undying pursuit of happiness. Although transparent, life remains in the boat. Through the mind’s eye, it’s almost as if you can see someone there— the anchor acts as a safety net and the ores are not in use. I love that there seems to be a strong element of the in-between in this work. The boat is physically here and yet at the same time appears to be no where. No where with a visible horizon, sun or stars— possibly even trapped between time and space? Perhaps even existing solely in the mind or in our ever-changing emotions. I can smell the spice and almost taste it on my breath— ironically enough, this piece reminds one of Aristotle’s Golden Mean.
