Christian Morales

My work explores the inter-personal relationship between Queer sexuality and Catholicism. With influences as diverse as Andres Serrano and Robert Mapplethorpe, my work employs visual aspects from both artists. New insights are generated from the layering interdisciplinary practice of utilizing installation based work. I have long been fascinated by the essential unreality of meaning and breaking the convention of Catholicism. What starts out as exploratory forms soon becomes corroded into a visual lust and temptation. Through photography I break the conventions of heteronormativity and commodification of holly figures results in a sense of decadence and the possibility of a new reality. As forms become distorted through studious photography and printmaking practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the dysphoric relationship of the sacred and profane.
