ABOUT ME

My name is Carolina Fontoura Alzaga, Caro for short. I am a Mexican-Brazilian artist, founder of Facaro, a multidisciplinary art studio, and creator of Connect and Lucienne, my two series of lighting sculptures.

The Connect series has been featured in LA Times, American Craft magazine, Luxe Magazine, and appeared in Architectural Digest and New York Times, to name a few. Connect has been commissioned for residential and commercial spaces in 13 countries and has been exhibited in the Comme des Garçons Trading Museum in Japan.

On November 16, 2023 I launched Lucienne, my second series of lighting sculptures at the WestEdge Design fair in Santa Monica, CA, where it was given an IIDA award.

 

The Lucienne series, meaning 'golden', reimagines the art deco glass rod chandelier through a contemporary lens. It will consist of many editions though for now I am presenting two: Devenir, which means 'to become', and Aurea which means 'light'. This series is in homage to my late mother, Lupe Alzaga.

 

Lucienne continues the socio-political themes and introspective self portrait established in Connect.

I am based in Los Angeles, California, where I produce artwork in my South LA art studio.
