CARLOS A. GIL / Visual Artist
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela
and received a degree in Fine Arts from The Cristobal Rojas School of Caracas.
After graduation, I traveled and studied Graphic Arts in Holland, Yugoslavia, and Spain.
I have participated in numerous exhibitions in my native country Europe and USA.
In 1994, I moved to Philadelphia, PA. and began to use digital photography and the computer to continue to develop my work.
My work is based on photographs of nature, modified using drawing and photography software. I believe that this technology is a powerful tool used to enrich artistic expression and explore the images. With this in mind, I simultaneously capture the beauty of the natural environment and the contours threatened by climate change. Working this way I am able to transform my images into new spaces in orden to submerge the viewer into a world of visual sensations, different and unknown to them.
