…”In this manner of contemplation, there is a shift tonew areas of small micro-worlds, transcendent messages wrappedin colour and truth, wich generate dialogues, arouse feelingsandgive meaning to the incomprehensible natural order governinghisworlds”… Eliseo de Pablos Curator
...”Efective both in abstraction and fragmentation, Luis Moro’swork draws us in through its great freedom of gesture, its capacity tomovefrom a monochrome palette to using bright colours, and its use ofmixed techniques. In this way Moro translates the dream which is reborn and incessantly transformed, feeding on thousands ofliving anddefunct materials, which come together for an instant and thendisperse at the moment of awakening”…. Jean-Louis Augé Director of the Goya Museum, France
“THE CULT OF THE BRUSH STROKE, MOVING BETWEEN THE FIGURATIVE AND THEABSTRACT, HOLDING UP A CONCRETE UNIVERSE, FULL OF PROMISE, BUT VERY DIFFICULT FOR MAN TO TAME” OLIVIER CLYNCKEMAILLIE Director of the Mouscrom Museum of Modern Art, Belgium
…”I was looking Moro’s work. There’s a lot of energy and figurative elements in this way of paintings that is very expresive. It looks like you’re having a lot of fun painting that frog orthe crab, you know or this kind of shell there is aparticular way that the lines come out of concentric lines that made a pretty interesting painting”… JULIAN SCHNABEL (Artist)
“ANIMALS ARE JUST A PRETEXT FOR TELLING OTHER STORIES.EVEN IF THE UNIVERSE ALREADY SPEAKS THROUGHLY EVERYLIVING BEING” LUIS MORO
“The sea-horse turns into a constellation. Certainpointsconfigure a shape, like stars in the sky. Using thelightwhich penetrates gaps and reduces all forms toshapelessness, projected light and shade suggest theunfathomable” Ramón Mayrata Art Critic
