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.

 

Cualquiera

Cualquiera puede ser
cuando se dá la ocasión
de ser cualquiera.

No hay reproches

limpia
irresoluta
la imagén de ella misma
son un millón
de pajáros
de espejos
aleteando.

Ella prepára su mansión
con su consolación
y con sus sueños.

de lo que venga
bienvenido
que importa ser cualquiera
para lograr su objetivo

Ella aprende la canción
de pena
y de memoria

cuando se rompe el cordón
y se rajan los espejos
no hay nadie en su mansión
para llegar a viejo.
