Luis Moreno Napoles


The work of Luis Moreno draws from a vivid palette of everyday materials - masa, clay, gum, hibiscus, chocolate, dead flowers, dirt - to produce a fragmentary, provisional record of otherwise undocumented lived experiences. What is made is less of an expression of individualism, it is one of many possibilities of a moving subject open to the desires of materials, things, and others. The resulting objects are abstracted forms evoking an imagined architecture, a lived terrain, and a place simultaneously familiar and estranged.
