Mr. Jorge Pardo is a painter and a sculptor, and his work has branched out into architecture, interior design, and graphic design. In the ’90s, he emerged as an artist whose work reflected crossovers involving different fields of creation. Particularly innovative are his installations at the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia and the Dia Center for the Arts in New York.
In the first, he transformed the space, and in the second he incorporated different works, setting up a dialogue with the environment that he himself had created. These interventions may be interpreted as a particular rereading of tradition, which appeals to the spectator’s sensibility and poses a series of questions about representation in art.
Born in Havana in 1963, Mr. Pardo has been living in the United States since he was six. He studied biology in Chicago and art in Los Angeles, where he is now living.
