Kora Moya Rojo

Kora Moya Rojo is a visual artist creating paintings that revolve around fluidity, nostalgia, and womanhood. Rendered in a pulsating palette of cold blues and warm reds, her vibrant works infuse autobiographical, historical, and religious iconographies with a rural sensibility. The energetic colours translate these themes into intriguing scenes, allowing the audience to dive into the lively compositions and decode the rich symbolism within them. Examining the complex effects of childhood trauma, female oppression, and urban migration, she investigates personal displacement and national identity in symbolic scenarios that overflow with utopian potential. Digitally reconstructing dreams, imaginations, and memories into enchanting drawings and canvases, Moya Rojo creates eerie worlds that inhabit the liminal space between the conscious and the unconscious. Her androgynous, embryonic figures stretch beyond the earthly domain to the otherworldly as they hybridize with provincial food, merge with existing objects, and mutate with unspecified surroundings. All her artworks become colourful surrealistic playgrounds for the unsteady eyes of the audience as they glide between the individual shapes and forms. In a continuous metamorphosis, the internal and external forces at play make the familiar foreign and the foreign disturbingly familiar.
