ABOUT ME

isla2 logo.jpg

 

If I were to introduce myself by saying who and what I am, my name, Carlos Terroba, and my place and date of birth, Palma in 1973, would give an incomplete picture of me if I did not then add that above any other biographical data scribbled on a piece of paper I am the result of the union of two passions: art and iron.

I inherited my artistic restlessness from my mother. A restlessness that, like her, I satisfied in my early years with poetry, as well as with drawing -the other great hobby of my childhood-, and which, in a certain way, I have never abandoned. From my father I inherited not only a trade, plasterer, which he in turn inherited from his, but also a love of work well done and satisfaction to carry it out with my own hands. The appearance of iron in my life was a determining factor and I owe it to a less than casual encounter with a blacksmith to whom I took a tackle to have fixed. I was immediately attracted to this metal and if my first steps with it were little more than a game, it didn't take long to feel the need to express all those feelings of love for art and the work done with my hands that I had inherited through my family, transferring those first drawings and poetic ideas to iron. In this way, this "painting with electrodes" -as I like to say-, defining element of me as a person.

From the confluence of these two great passions, art and iron, a personal concept of artistic commitment was born, which is summarized in the signature that accompanies and identifies my works: THIERRO. With the union of Terroba and Hierro in the same word I try to symbolize the perfect communion between my person and an element, the iron, that moves me, makes me happy and angry at the same time, and that, in short, awakens my feelings. 

This brief presentation would also be incomplete if it did not include a final paragraph dedicated to thanking all those people who have given me their support, their trust and, above all, their words of encouragement. 

Thank you all.
