Jose Moreno’s Organic Abstracts Convey Existential Concepts

September 15, 2014 – 11:42 am | Comments Off

Inspired by Antonio Ramón Pinto, Viviano Vargas and by his two children, Jose Moreno’s works have been compared to Cobra Art and Brute Art.

Employing a diversity of materials and media, he freely experiments with forms, volumes, lines, and concepts such as the origin of life and the nature of being. “I admire, intuition, freshness, the gesture, and the simplicity of shapes and the way they relate to their work-life environment,” says Moreno. His arresting use of jagged colors and intricate backgrounds suggests the spontaneity of creation and the very unpredictability of life.

Moreno explores infinite lives, ages past, and the “fable of the universe.” On the fringes of conventional logic, his simple shapes are perceived as flirty, flashy, and somewhat proto-human. In what some have called organic abstraction, the artist uses color and form to portray life’s ruptures and the vanishing of luck through time. In this way, he defines the friction in couples’ relationships and the fleeting moments of childhood fantasies. Through convex imagery and the entropy of isolated shapes, Moreno succeeds in creating a context for humanity’s struggle.
