CARLOS MATA 

(1949 - 2008, España)

En hierro colado y oxidado, así como en bronce de pátina azul-verdosa, Mata trabaja sus temáticas escultóricas. El hierro lo destina a figuras totémicas, construcciones primitivas con elementos modernos y caballos, mientras que el bronce les sirve para sus esquemas de la bóveda celeste en los que astros y planetas son como flores en lo alto de largos tallos – expresión de nuestras miradas – que cuando se mueven interpretan la música sideral. Adrede utilizo expresiones poéticas porque en el primitivismo del Mata no domina, aunque exista, la lucha del hombre por superar las limitaciones del entorno, sino que siempre impone la alegría del niño que infunde al esquematismo de sus trazos, el entusiasmo que siente por todo lo que descubre. Quizá por ello hay una oposición entre sus altos edificios que, en principio, sugieren las construcciones primitivas de ciertas culturas y que en realidad son bloques de casas actuales, con los automóviles que pone a sus pies y que representan a los ciudadanos que regresan de un fin de semana o con los yates del puerto deportivo al que en otras ocasiones se asoman. El salto de siglos y de eras al que obliga es muy brusco y ni siquiera pueden darlo sus indómitos caballos, que por algo tienen semejanza con los que vienen del arte etrusco. Pero en sus cielos el tiempo humano no cuenta y, vista en su conjunto, la exposición merece ser visitada.
