Carolina Sardi is an Argentinean artist based in Miami, Florida.  She attended the Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina, where she obtained her Bachelor in Arts and later her MFA in Sculpture. Sardi also studied with sculptor Ennio Iommi.

She is best known for her wall installations comprised of organic elements cut from steel and aluminum, which she sometimes refers to as “landscapes”. Made out of several smaller pieces, she places them directly on the wall, as if floating on an invisible grid. By combining the effects of lights and shadows, colors and shapes, the possibilities are literally infinite. Space is another element Sardi considers when designing her pieces: she is keenly aware of the shape/space relationship, making sure that the spatial distribution is perfectly organized, often giving the pieces a minimalist appearance.

She plays with the effects of volume, light and shadow, adding to the work another layer of possibilities. In a recent series she uses polished gold, copper, or chrome surfaces, in which the viewers see their own reflections, thereby introducing a variety of added readings.

Sardi has been commissioned for several site specific large scale installations in many of Miami’s and Houston’s acclaimed buildings and private homes, including most recently the newly finished Apogee Hollywood condominiums and upcoming Icon Bay project.  She has done commissions for Miami-Dade Art in Public Places , Neiman Marcus, Hyatt Regency Hotel, and the The Slade Palm Beach, to mention a few. Her work can be found in private collections in United States, England, Italy, Germany, France, South Africa, among other countries; as well as at the Art Museum of the Americas, OAS, Washington, D.C.; and at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
