Andrés Izquierdo (b.1993) is an artist and designer living and working in Madrid. Izquierdo disfigures, mutates, and weaves together an amalgam of fiction, phenomenons, superstitions, myths, or reveries. By twisting them and forcing them to merge on the same landscape, he builds autonomous narratives which break out of his domain. His creative process leans on visions or revelations rather than on intellect or academia. He sees the studio as a sacred place for objects to emerge in the manner of rituals and invocations.
His work explores conflicting physical and philosophical conditions such as divine and perverse, artificial and self-generated, baroque and minimalist, or abstract and hyper-realistic. The results of his investigations conclude in the form of sculptures, functional objects, scenographies, architectures, and immersive installations where spiritual and metaphysical questions raised through perception and illusion discuss the nature of earthly notions such as faith, guilt, time, violence, and awareness.
