Caldrián is the fusion of my two first names, seeking to integrate different-opposite aspects of my personality; my analytical side that explores solutions to the everyday society problems, while my passional side manifests my subtle thoughts in a dramatic way using raw and potent aesthetics.
“Hergo Metallic Transformations” was the name of the company that my father founded more than 30 years ago, a fusion of my last names. Since then, I have observed how it is possible for the hardest materials to be molded into robust structures that withstand the passage of time. Experiences that I associate with the possibility of breaking the hard mental paradigms responsible for human misery, which can evolve into strong mental structures that generate conscious freedom.
With aesthetic arguments I want to inspire the transformation of these paradigms alluding to Descartes’ approach «cogito ergo sum» I think, therefore I am.
My mother battles from the trenches of psychoanalysis and PhD philosophies to explain the functioning of the artist’s mind, a searching that in my case has manifested itself in an endless anthropological journey, spying clandestinely immersed in the most opposite professional trades and their corresponding university tribes; from technological engineering to the human sciences, all with the intention of remembering the sense of the original integration of the professions, resisting specialization, so that the free and sovereign individual recognizes their power and responsibility. However I’m licensed by the state to exercise my visual arts profession…
My pieces are a sample that the hard work of transforming the hardest materials can give life to forceful forms that persist over time, in the hope that these representations can preserve the most sublime ideas of knowledge that touches the human soul.
