Carlo Cordua is born in Naples in 1963. Since his adolescence he has drawn and painted but the painting represents his maturation after a long process.
He lives a troubled relationship with the nature, he has uncontaminated images of the past and his landscapes are the evidence.
He exposes in particular abroad- French, Spain, Canada, Argentina- but every exposition represents a test and a suffering participation. His pastel works are in many museums: Budapest, Wesprem, Cracovia, Pitest, Montreal. He works in an isolated and secret studio with an oranges and lemons garden.
The painter is fascinated by infinitive perspectives offered by sea’s vitality, typical Impressionistic Mediterranean light that marks the profiles of hills of his home country.
“My interest is focused on the landscape. I need to tell by my memories. The pictures are evanescent, rare evoking sea, field, a nature without artifices and sheltered by man harasses. For me, the landscapes are symbolic, they represent my wonderful childhood and they express the most authentic aspect of my personality by the colours and the atmospheres”.
