Lorena Morales expresses change, possibility and potential in her art. She creates sculptures that can be disassembled and rearranged and paintings on Plexiglas that vary depending on the lighting in the room and the angle of the viewer.
In her works Morales explores the changing light of day, the energy of new beginnings and the passing of current realities.
Because her pieces change, they can represent a passing moment, the potential of a brighter future, an optimism that is central to Morales’ personality. She believes that art is about sharing and communicating.
Her focus is the shadow that the piece casts around it, a new reflection of color or a pattern of lines and shapes that surprise the viewer. Despite the very technical and rigid creation process, the pieces burst with energy and life.
