Neilson Gallery -
Ramon David Morales
The artwork that the painter Ramon David Morales presents at Neilson gallery is part of his project La Tierra y el barro (Earth and mud). In this new project, the main theme is alchemy, an ancestor to modern science that, by means of the observation of nature, combined elements of chemistry, metallurgy, physics, medicine, astrology, semiotics, mysticism, spiritualism, and art.The goal of his pictorial work is to represent primary concepts that have accompanied man throughout history in a direct, simple, almost geometrical way; ideas already adopted and internalized by society, but perhaps not reflected on by the individual with the necessary depth.
This time, Ramón David Morales brings us a purified image, a syllabus almost, explaining the weather, the necessary origin of rain, the exact time of the eclipse, time’s mathematical repetition in the universe, the lunar cycle, the arrangement of the planets and their circumgyration, the rainbow, the illuminating lightning storm, the meteorite, the sunset, and the sunrise. The project is also related to the first historical occupations of man, starting with the handling of basic natural resources and the elements of nature; work such as that of masons, potters, carpenters, blacksmiths, and farmers.
Ramón David Morales brings the focus back on a primary and essential form of life, which is close to nature and ancient life values that are necessary for man today at this point in history.
