Second Chance

Cristina Moroño

Puerta Roja kicks off the fall art season with the first solo exhibition in Asia by Hong Kong based Spanish artist Cristina Moroño. “Second Chance” presents a  new series of works where objects and discarded books are plunged into Cristina’s own handmade paper, which plays both as content and canvas.

Cristina Moroño is an artist in pursuit of constant experimentation whose trajectory has been recognized and awarded by notable institutions such as the Joan Miró Foundation. Merging different practices, including photography, etching, engraving, collage and paper making, Cristina oscillates between the figurative and the abstract.

The Spanish artist has worked in Madrid, New York and now in Hong Kong, where she has produced her most recent series of works titled Second Chance which deepens the artist’s interest in experimentation by making her own paper. Blithely following in the footsteps of Antoni Tàpies’ “art informale” and its revolutionary use of mixed media and everyday objects, Cristina incorporates non-artistic materials into the work.
