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.

Portraying. Laying a foundation. Scripting the code for the connection of the other entities. Jens Hauser affirms that all is Bio Art. He must see the kids in Puerto Rico or in L.A. Bio-war. 24/7 razor blade programs, that hit in the heels. Piercing music and screams from mom. Counter-love from grave to cradle. Is a miracle that Manu is alive today. Misshaping his future so many times, with rage in his bones, syruping love. Look him in the eyes, red as fury. May the rage transform to justice in Rock hands. May the enemies plunge as anchors. Rocksteady.
