Carlos Saladen Vargas ‘apotropaic’ (2013)

While based in Margarita Island, Venezuela, Carlos’s work embodied an evolving journey, encouraged, in large part, by being in contact with the island’s local art production and tradition (naïf art as conceived by the avant-garde at the turn of the 19th century). This led him to investigate two main lines of inquiry. The first, related to theories concerning the primordial origins of art as well as Primitivist attitudes in Western Art. The second examined contemporary Decolonial thought that attempted to dignify the ways of life, thinking and feeling of cultures demonised by Modernity.
