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.

Rocksteady

Rocksteady project is a visual journey that uses expanded drawing, crowdsourcing, research and modelling to arrange analog, physical and historical imagery to contribute a big story. The process is a community oriented, open-end form in which traditional art forms are intertwined with digital media and narratives techniques.

May I introduce this fellow as a villain or as a hero? As a lost fellow? A shadow in the dust? Should I make him evil and void? Reproducible as hundred or millions perhaps? Sneaking respect, breathing discontent. An old pharisee with bad breath? With ants crawling his arms? With ants navigating his legs, eating confident his bread? Perhaps...Cold as harsh. Void and warm. He get his gloves off. Boxer gloves? Rock of the Ages shine light in their faces, the guilt broken as dark crystals or consumed as black holes. The bread became a ski artefact for the redeemed and their good deeds are smoke in the oven.
