ABOUT

...............................................................................................

    Mario Castro Baro (Madrid, 1987) is an artist based in León who uses photography as a connecting link between mind and nature, while it is a deliberate means of approaching the deepest and most archaic layers of psychology. His fascination with the myths and deities built by the human being since ancient times, prompts him to investigate different cultures and to explore the places where the soul, the hidden and the imaginary once had a place. In his search, from the territories of sleep and wakefulness, he builds the symbols that shape his inner universe. Thus, matter and form, substance and idea, are synthesized in a single and indissoluble act of transcendence through his work.

    Mario Castro Baro (Madrid, 1987) es un artista radicado en León que emplea la fotografía como un vínculo de conexión entre la mente y la naturaleza, en tanto que constituya un medio deliberado de aproximarse hacia las capas más profundas y arcaicas de la psicología. Su fascinación hacia los mitos y deidades construidos por el ser humano desde la antigüedad, le impulsa a indagar en diferentes culturas y a recorrer los parajes en donde antaño tuvo cabida lo anímico, lo oculto y lo imaginario; predispuesto a contemplar el espectáculo onírico que la naturaleza puede ofrecerle a nuestros sentidos. En su búsqueda, desde los territorios del sueño y la vigilia, construye los símbolos que van moldeando su universo interior. Así, materia y forma, sustancia e idea, se sintetizan en un único e indisoluble acto de trascendencia a través de su obra.
