DAN CASADO (b 1956 in Argentina, South America)
"I lived in Spain since 1981, close to Barcelona/Girona area.
In 2003 moved to the volcanic island of El Hierro, one of the Canary Islands, selected by the UNESCO as a
Biosphere Reserve. There, I began making works transforming found
objects into pieces of art: paper collages and sculptural assemblages.
In October 2013 I settled my home-studio in the mountains of La Creuse,
France, in the Natural Park of Millevaches.
Reinventing human and animal forms, freely finding and showing the hidden figures inside found papers and materials, I wonder about human relations, the possibility/impossibility of communication, affections and illusions.
Art is the tool to re-construct the world. Art is my key."
