Born in 1962 Santi Spiritus, Cuba. Lives in New York
Cardenas’s work is defined by a singular idea expressed through a body of work that constitutes an aesthetic trajectory.
A romantic relationship between nature and architecture gives way to a stylized vision of intimate landscapes… a symbolic representation of the intersection between that which is natural and the power of human intelligence to fabricate, to create.
Taken as a whole, his work reflects a consistency of language and an authentic expression of a vision, a vision at once curious and mischievous, that at times can even transform into a bucolic experience. —-…. Jorge Moya
