Antonio Mora creates art made to disturb the conscience. His portraits exist in a space where dream worlds are superimposed with reality, creating hybrid beings of great beauty and expressive force.
Having mastered the technique of digital collage using various tools such as filters, hues, saturations and gradients of opacity, Antonio’s creative process results in unified textures and the merging of two photographs.
His inspiration derives from the portraits themselves; he dives into the imagination to bring to life an image that speaks of a deeper world, and the moment between sleep and consciousness.
Mora describes himself as someone who makes cocktails, using images found in blogs, magazines, and fusing them together. Works of great forcefulness and expressive force that do not leave anybody indifferent.
I find the blending of images interesting, there is almost a sense of an old film camera not being wound on and creating a double exposure. He describes the works as a way to open a crack in our memory allowing us to watch, though only an instant, the hybrid beings who populate our deepest dreams. The surreal takes on people, place and thing make you interact with the images.
