Carlos Amorales’ visual vocabulary—seen in his installations, animations, drawings, sculptures, and paintings—stems from his “Liquid Archive,” a digital collection of black-silhouetted images extracted from observations of nature and urban scenes. Major symbols recurring throughout the archive include spider webs, birds, skulls, leafy branches, and pregnant women. Amorales positions himself as a mediator between these images and their manifestation in works of art, filtering and combining them to produce unpredictable, and at times unsettling, juxtapositions.
