PRAN - Carlos N. Molina, a paper sculptor and a digital artist, exhibits tridimentional objects of ephemeral nature created using paper in his first exhibition with Carter Burden Gallery, Metamorphosis. The accessibility and malleability of the medium allows him the opportunity to play with the material. This playing with possibilities lets hidden forms reveal themselves and transforms lines and shapes into whimsical figurative and abstract objects. Molina states, “The idea of having a flat surface like a sheet of paper transform into a piece with volume is very inspiring to me, especially creating organic, soft forms, and freestyle abstracts.”

Carlos N. Molina was born in the west coast of Puerto Rico, famous for its beautiful beaches and lush mountains. He moved to New York City in 1993 after living and studying in Los Angeles, Paris, and South Korea. His work has been exhibited in Puerto Rico, Japan, Hong Kong, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and other cities in the United States. Behind his fanciful creations, there is always a deeper meaning and a committed pursuit of beauty and celebration of diversity. His work tells a very personal story, of what was and what could be—a longing for an idyllic, joyful and a just world. Currently, Molina is working on taking features from his digital and paper art, and recreating them on a larger scale, while maintaining the intimate element that invites one to get close and explore his personal world.
