    "During the last years my main interest when I´m painting is to let the painting have its own autonomy. I intentionally let it slide and follow its own course and I intervene directing the direction in which the painting falls, moving the painting from one side to another, like a kind of dance."

  • Felicidad Moreno was born in Spain in 1959 and grew up inspired by the artistic atmosphere and revolutionary new ways of artistic expression during the 1980s. Since the beginning of her career, she has constantly reinvented and deepened her painterly language. She challenges the boundaries of painting by combining different techniques and engaging colors and forms within an abstract game.

    “Water flowing through a river is never the same. In the same way, the paintings of Felicidad are active supports in constant change. In Moreno's work, it is the cellular forms that hypnotically dominate the surface, dissolving and merging with each other. At times they merge with the background, and at others, like rays reflecting off water, they flow through the openings of the large patches of paint.”

  • At different stages of her artistic career, she focused on circles, spirals, and geometric forms. Now she lets the paint dance on the canvas in a full expression of abstractionism. Moreno allows the liquid enamel to follow its own course over the acrylic background while altering the natural flow by moving and balancing the canvas. The resulting trace stems from a controlled coincidence and creates organic shapes that characterize her new body of work.

    Streamflow – Like streams of water, Felicidad Moreno lets the paint flow across her canvasses, capturing a state between weightlessness and grand movement. 

    Moreno’s works are expressions of movement in liquified forms. In each of her paintings, splashes of colors find their way through numerous layers of paint. 

    Her compositions lead the eye over curves and lines into an unknown space beyond the boundaries of the canvas, absorbing the viewer into the movement of the work.
