Silence in blue

Artist: Ricardo Moraga

Title: «Silencio en azul»

Media: mixed media on canvas

Location: room 113


In this work Ricardo Moraga resorts to his usual iconography. The artist offers us the most lyrical version of his style.

In it, we find exuberant vegetation that seems like it wants to come out of the wall. The whole is surrounded by a rusty sheet metal, which is another classic feature of Moraga’s works.

However, the interior forest seems covered by a fog that does not allow to see it clearly. This is another frequent resource of the artist, which adds an element of mystery to the whole.

The green colour of the vegetation contrasts with the rusty tone of the metal and with the bluish tones of the fog, thus achieving a chromatic balance to which is added the balance of the composition itself.

This work, by composition and theme, can be considered a typical painting by Moraga.
