Shie Moreno: Sights, Sounds and Spirits
No Romance Galleries presents “Sights, Sounds and Spirits” to be held on Saturday, May 17th 2014. Curated by Osiel Rojas of No Romance Galleries, the Solo Show titled “Sights, Sounds and Spirits” will present the works of artist Shie Moreno. New York based artist Shie Moreno will present an exhibit featuring paintings, sculptures and music reflective of his Afro-Cuban ancestry, spiritual roots, and dynamic connection to the cities he’s lived in. ‘Sights, Sounds and Spirits’ will present an artistic journey through the currents of the geographical, cultural, temporal and material, which converge in Moreno’s art. The artist’s grounded spirituality inspires the creation of work with a clear energy, radiating an awareness that is subject to the imperatives of living things. Through his work, light, color and rhythm are made elemental and given expression- reflecting a lifetime of devotion and development in each painting, bringing ‘Sights, Sounds and Spirits’ to life. “I believe that music, folklore, culture, and history are all organic processes which compel me to study and render what I experience into unique visuals,” Moreno says. “I respect the sanctity of objects, but am not constrained by them. I strive for no barriers.”
The opening reception will be held from 7:00pm – 10:00pm on Saturday, May 17th 2014 at No Romance Galleries, 355 Broadway TriBeCa, New York.
