Birth

Ella and El were the first ones, but not the only ones.

There were also all kinds of plants and animals, and water that flowed like a river.

It was perfect. Neither She nor He knew all about Salvatore. 

Far away, Fuckinger seemed to grasp the big picture.

It was the shoes that he hated the most. For him they were useless. 

Also, Ella & El were designed to multiply and that would cost him
 land that he didn’t wanted to surrender and time he didn’t have.  

“Slippers,” —thought Fuckinger.
The master plan was looking partially good.

Ella & El deprived of their shoes and being seduced by the casual pink ballet slippers.
“Who doesn’t like Ballet,”—said Fuckinger to himself and his army (thinking of peacocks and swan lakes).  

Dancing was not the problem. 

If Salvatore didn’t watch everything, 

Fuckinger would come out abruptly to make the offer.

But Salvatore always pays attention. His eyes do not blink.

Knowing Salvatore, I think now that He was watching.

But the captain now had a big problem

and it was how to steal their shoes.”

Oh (or the birth of the Rocksteadys)

En un simple y casi infantil ‘doble tono’ (Blanco & Negro), Morales-Hernández crea historias a través de un proceso prolífico de dibujo y continua ordalía gráfica. Ordenando dibujos digitales, pinturas en carbón/ acrílico y grabado en CNC o esculturas para poblar sus historias ‘multi-part’.

“Oh” (or the birth of the Rocksteadys) es el primer capítulo de una serie de trabajos a presentarse que redescubren las areas personales, políticas y cósmicas de la narrativa y la representacion visual. Tomando en cuenta el desafio de definir una experiencia en una cultura global. “Oh”, también está en las palabras del autor; “la condición onomatopéyica presente” y la sorpresa tipológica de una narrativa simultaneamente personal y universal. “Oh” es también el nombre del archivo vector disponible en la página personal de Ricardo Morales como parte de la exhibición. Éste como otros archivos Morales-Hernández pueden ser recogidos, coleccionados, ejecutados y realizados en cualquier lugar bajo una serie de instrucciones.

La práctica de Ricardo Morales-Hernández (n.1980) consiste en representar una narrativa personal, polítca y cósmica. Utilizando medios análogos, digitales y biológicos con un enfoque en el dibujo.

Sus trabajos en ocasiones son alimentados por prácticas participativas de voluntarios a través del Internet, en talleres nómadas en Europa y Latino América. Relaciones históricas se pueden apreciar y extraer de: marcas primitivas, anotaciones medievales, neo expresionismo, arte concreto, estética conceptual y posdigital mientras a su vez cuestiona los discursos dominantes del arte contemporáneo. Desertó sus estudios en Media Arts, Religión y Ciencias Sociales. Ha sido recipiente de multiples residencias, becas y reconocimientos. Entre ellos el AIR-CPW – Andy Warhol Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts y el Center for Image Science en Austria. Actualmente trabaja desde San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Oh (or the birth of the Rocksteadys)

a solo exhibition by Ricardo Morales-Hernández

La Productora, Santurce, Puerto Rico

Opening Saturday, September 26, 2015

Closing Saturday, October 17, 2015.

In a simple and almost infantile “two-tone” (Black & White), Morales-Hernández creates stories thorough a prolific process of drawing and continuous graphic ordeal. Arraying digital drawings, charcoal/acrylic paintings and CNC engravings or sculptures to populate his multi-part stories.

“Oh” (or the birth of the Rocksteadys) is the first chapter of a series of works put in display rediscovering the personal, political and cosmical arena of storytelling and visual representation. Taking into account the challenge to define experience in a global culture, “Oh”, also is in the words of the author; “the present onomatopoeic condition” and the typological surprise of a simultaneous personal and universal narrative. “Oh” is also the name of a vector file available in his personal website as part of the exhibition. This as others Morales-Hernández files can be collected, executed and performed in any venue with a set of instructions.

The practice of Ricardo Morales-Hernández(b.1980) consists in representing a personal, political and cosmic narrative. He uses analog, digital and biological media with a main focus in drawing. His works in occasions are fed by participative practices of  volunteers on internet, in nomad workshops in Europe or Latin America. Historical relations can be traced from: primitive markings, medieval marginalia, neo-expressionism, concrete art , conceptual 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. Had been recipient of multiples residencies, scholarships and awards among them AIR–CPW- Andy Warhol Foundation,National Endowment for the Arts, and the Center for Image Science in Austria. Currently he works from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
