Like a contemporary Goya, who created of Los Caprichos, Carlos combines the macabre with whimsy and his love of fabrics with sophisticated composition and absurd imagery. His prolific body of large scale textile collages and embroidery are fueled by his personal reaction to the events on September 11, both in the USA and in Chile.
As an artist, resonates with Dadaism, which was the reaction of artists like Marcel Duchamp, to World War I. Carlos studied art inNew York. Years later he returned to NYC and was confronted with the fate ofthe World Trade Center. Those same excruciating feelings of peril and atrocity that he experienced as a child came rushing back.
Humans are blessed to have artists/empaths, like Carlos Bautista Biernnay who are on this planet to hold a mirror to our actions, motivations and feelings. They absorb the pain and joy, the beautiful and the ugly. Their release is to synthesize what they have collected and to create art, the reflection of humanity. As an absurdist, Carlos is not judgmental. His art is a touchstone combining whimsy and the macabre, leaving it to the viewers to think and feel for themselves.
