Alejandra Moros, close-up

Alejandra Moros | Collater.al

Each person’s skin, understood as folds and fingerprints, tells a unique story, impossible to find in any other hypothetical look-alike or twin. The wrinkles and details of the individual parts that make up a human body depend on genetic aspects, but also on the daily history of each of us. This uniqueness and the desire to discover bodies up close are the foundations from which artist Alejandra Moros (2000) starts, who in her Miami studio makes canvases that act as a magnifying glass to impersonal stories.
In fact, the artist’s works do not place the focus on the identities of the subjects, concentrating rather on the body and on details that are sometimes indistinguishable but capable of rendering a physical sensation such as softness, or the pressure and force that the hands produce.
To all these close-ups is then added by the artist what looks like a uniform layer of color, a blanket of tones that has the effect of a photographic filter. We seem to enter the intimacy of unknown subjects, but also to look at everything as if we were scientists bent over a miscroscope, for a feeling of unexpected detachment.
