Italian artist Nicola Caredda’s dreamlike acrylic works on canvas blend eroded landscapes and structures with playful elements of pop culture and mystical iconography. The paintings capturing a vague narrative ripped from the artist’s subconscious.
Caredda creates a free world where anything can happen, a new dimension in which everyone can choose their own direction even if it may be wrong or even lead to self-destruction. Where adults see danger and leave warning signs, Caredda sees freedom in its truest form, portraying possibility and fulfillment. Caredda’s works are a commentary on the restrictions of adult life, bringing viewers into a layered and complex place.
Nicola Caredda was born in Cagliari in 1981, lives and works in Milan. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sassari and undertake an independent and singular pictorial search path rather secluded compared to the most popular movements by local artists of his age.
Transcends reality using a dreamy-visionary language, creates dense special obsessively images that blend elements from distant expressive vocabularies, producing enhanced by an indecipherable suggestions enigmatic charge, a recognizable painting, individual things he painted based on specific encodings , not only artistic, but part of our customary view.
In his works hanging objects between the real and the surreal, between physics and metaphysics that tell the result of a reality of a vision of the whole inner and subjective. A personal metaphorical language to an alienating result and the same time appealing to a painting that tries to exorcise fear and anguish.
