About Mauricio Morillas
"I am influenced both by the cultural richness of my hometown of Mexico City as well as the urban landscapes of New York City where I now create most of my art. As a mixed media artist, I experiment with technique and use diverse materials such as wood, metal, acrylic, paper, glass and resin. I focus on creating subtle textures and blurring the boundaries between two- and three-dimensional perspectives so that the viewer's eye sees something new at every level and on every inch of the piece. Working in mixed media is a constant learning experience, an exploration to discover how unlikely things will react to each other. I build layers, transform and repurpose my materials, and create shadows and indentations until a composition is complete. I want each piece to be a unique vision preserving detail and contrasts within an overall minimalist aesthetic."
