Sol Press ~ California
(Gloria Morales)

Originally from the state of Oaxaca in Mexico, Gloria Morales now resides in San Francisco.

Gloria Morales: "As an artist using a visual vocabulary inspired in nature and nurture in the traditions of my cultural heritage as well as my appreciation of other cultures of the world I want to be a medium to express the continuity of life through changes in nature and the cycles of life and death where the past, the present and the future simultaneously coexist."
By Gloria Morales

Gloria Morales: "My work is the reflection of my environment which depicts the communion between nature and culture and their fragile balancing act. In my artwork I juxtapose the anatomy of the human body and of trees because of their intricate structure, the constant flow of energy and life carried by arteries and veins, branches and leaves conforming a complex unity of functions inscribed in a much larger and harmonious universe."

Silence is sound

pure space
where the spirit sends
notes in its flight

El silencio es sonido

Espacio puro
donde el aliento emite
notas en su vuelo ...
