CAMIBAart Gallery is pleased to present Glimmers of Time, an exhibition featuring new multi-dimensional paintings and installations by Venezuela-born, Houston-based artist Lorena Morales. Glimmers of Time marks Morales’ second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Continuing her exploration of memories and the effect time has on them, Morales has filled the gallery with vibrant colored rods. Set in groups along the walls, these clear rods are painted to become glimmering lines, some solid, some gradients, and others speckled with contrasting colors. While some rods are grouped on metal plates, there are others mounted directly to the wall. As the viewer approaches the works, the color appears and then disappears much like memories.
In the center of the gallery are gatherings of freestanding sculptures, set in conversation with each other – sharing memories – maybe memories of home or of times past. Visitors are encouraged to weave through these freestanding sculptures and gaze deeply into them. Each is a memory to be told. Do the colors, shapes, or images spark a memory?
Memories often feel like fragile fleeting things. The simplest smell, sight, sound, or thought can spark a memory, while the lightest wind can blow it out. With this exhibition, Lorena Morales encourages us to share our memories - to give them life.
In her own words:
"My work focuses on conveying the impermanence of reality, movement of time, and perception of home by the use of lines, shapes, and colors."
About the Artist:
A native of Venezuela, Lorena Morales graduated from Rafael Urdaneta University with a degree in Business Administration before immigrating to the United States and studying at the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. In 2011, she was awarded scholarships from The Carlos Cruz-Diez Foundation and the Glassell School to participate in the Advance Seminar in Contemporary Art: The Doors of Perception.
Lorena Morales’ artworks have been exhibited in Germany, in Venezuela, throughout the US, and extensively in Texas. Winning many awards and grants, she has also completed numerous public and private commissions, including a commission by Houston First Corporation for a site-specific installation to be included in Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center’s permanent collection. She completed the installation of this 50” x 200” artwork titled “Flight Plan” in August of 2016.
