About Carmen Dardalla

I was born in Santiago de Chile , but Im half argentine and half spanish. I was brought up in different countries,so Im a mixture of many cultures wich ,I think are reflected in my personality and my work.Feeling comfortable anywhere,accepting and loving different cultures and people.I live on my work since Im very young ,designing sculptures and art objects ,but my passion is stone carving.I never was,nor thought of becoming or doing other than what I do. Luckily...I think in forms,space,volumes,textures,structures....Even if my art education was abstract, my forms are more classic,with a twist of contemporary design..Nudes have been my basic inspiration ,but stone and marble further more.The discovery of the richness of this material has given me something more inspiring.A guide I would say.I bought five tons from Carrrara,Italy.Very little left.The sculptures I have sold are in different collections ,here and other countries.Anyways my new sculptures are different and I like the idea of my next exhibit mixing with drawings wich has allways been my company.I also design art objects wich are numbered and signed.They have been bought and given to different presidents,such as Gorbachov,Lech Walesa,etci also design awards,for example for Telefnica, Warner Music,Pecom,Diners,Audi ,Volks Wagen,etc
