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.

 

Hombreárbol perseguido por los fündis.

soy un hombreárbol
pero a los exprimidos
no le gusta la música que hago

no le gusta la música
que entono
no les gusta
la alabanza de mis labios

y le salen venenos por los poros
y le revientan
batallas en sus manos

ellos
los bienvistos
se consuelan con consultar oráculos

no escuchan trompeta
no oyen voz de mando
dándose al reflejo
le suenan los halagos

quieren ser serenos
sobando el trofeo
y llegar a viejos

quieren ser artistas
preservando el estatus con su imaginación
optimista

quieren que su pellejo
llegue lejos
sin recibir el mejor regalo
caro.
