Redbud Gallery presents Luis Moro: Animal Cartography
Gulf Caribbean by Luis Moro, Mixed Media on Paper Map, 17.4" x 27.7" Photo by Luis Moro

Luis Moro's work is based around the animal world and its relationship with man and his borders, marked by the countries’ geographical limitations, highways, cities, and industrial centers that are true walls for animal migrations. In particular, for the monarch butterfly on its long trip across North America and the development of different forms of life and the natural balance.

There are maps of bison, real victims of human progress. The polar bear at a North Pole that is thawing as a metaphor of climate change and the consequences of a space marked by humans and the over exploitation of the planet. On the other hand, there are also pianola scores with musical slits in the paper pointing to the songs of birds, symbol of the relationship of nature with the artifices that coexist within it.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 30.
