Martin Morales is an artist based in the Venezuelan province, with the greatest national projection. As an experimental engraver, he spends part of his time teaching graphic arts in his workshop in the small town of Tovar, in Mérida State. Hard working and patient, he has taken to practical consequences an inquiry based on his engraving experiences and his studies carried out in Italy and the Universidad de Costa Rica. Through this inquiry he has developed a personal language from the principles of optical and retinal art. As such, the figurative content of his images is joined with the results obtained by a method that consists of an analysis of the perception of color in light and translation into virtual movement.
About the Artist
We are all survivors in this world. I am an American citizen and an Iranian woman who understands the burden of oppression. Economic, political and social unrest impacts us all. In an age when selfishness and narcissism are like contagious diseases, we must nurture our common humanity. Unconditional love will empower us. Unconditional love can cure these diseases by creating a culture of respect, honesty and commitment. We must learn to trust, to face our challenges and inspire – through art and activism – the responsibility of everyone to realize their true potential.
