The practice of Ricardo Morales-Hernández(b.1980) consists in drawing a personal, political and cosmic story. He uses analog, digital and biological media with a main focus in extemporal drawing. Known for his paradisiac imagery evoking musical systems that reminisce the natural surroundings of the colony of Puerto Rico. Historical relations can be traced from: primitive markings, medieval marginalia, neo-expressionism and post-digital aesthetics while at the same time questioning the dominant discourses of contemporary art. He deserted studies in Media Arts, Religion and Social Sciences and been recipient of AIR–CPW- Andy Warhol Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts and Center for Image Science in Austria among others. Currently he works from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

BRÈVE HISTORIE DE L'ESPRIT SAINT is an investigation and multimedia project that re-evaluates the idea of an unrecognizable and inaccessible god that was presented by the French rationalists in the 18th century. The work responds to the classification of knowledge and questions the abused contemporary concept of inspiration as the association of ideas. Taking biblical and historical moments as a common ground it present a impossible and incomplete representation of inspired events in linear history.  These moments and histories defy rational understanding. Such as the Supernatural God and Man/Woman encounters (The Garden of Eden as The Garden of my Delights. From The Garden of the Delights left panel from Hieronymus Bosch 1480-1490) and enigmatic historical deaths caused by religious persecutions (Music and Martyrs). Bréve Historie is a didactic project to interpret our relation to the spiritual and discover the limits of the rationale. This is displayed by drawings, collage, installations, murals and video.
