Carlos Bernal Iglesias
Meet the Artist Behind Quantum Photographic Art
Carlos Bernal Iglesias is a prolific Spanish multimedia artist and conceptual photographer, who explores the confines of reality and perception in his work.
Self-taught since 1984, Carlos has exhibited internationally in galleries in New York, Madrid, Barcelona, and Hamburg. He has participated in fairs such as the Miami River Art Fair and received various awards, including the Golden Star for Professional Excellence.
His innovative work delves into themes such as subconscious programming, altered states of consciousness, and creative manifestation. Through meticulous compositions in photography, video, and installations, he invites the viewer to transcend the boundaries of the real and connect with other dimensions.
As he expresses in his artistic statement: “Reality is a projection of our subconscious and my art is based on the fact that we can program that subconscious and see it in reality.”
Carlos has several photo books that are part of the permanent collection of the prestigious Photo-Book Museum in Cologne, Germany. He continues to create and exhibit prolifically, sharing his particular vision on the flexible nature of reality.
Reality is a projection of our subconscious and my art is based on the belief that we can program that subconscious and see it in reality. I want my art to be a celebration of the infinite potential that exists in each one of us. The reality we perceive is an illusion based on our subconscious mind and its programming. If we learn to reprogram our subconscious, we can change that reality towards the Light.
