ARTIST TALK on Saturday, May 11, 2024 at 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM: Join artist Lorena Morales in conversation with Gabriel Martinez in this closing day event at Hooks-Epstein Galleries.

APRIL 13 – MAY 11, 2024: Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents “Topographies of a Place to Know” featuring mixed-media works by Venezuelan American artist, Lorena Morales.

Morales presents new works that belong to the series “Topographies of a Place to Know”, which she started in 2019 while living as an expat in Soyo, Angola. To better understand her surroundings and the context of her location, she searched for detailed city and area maps, to no avail. As a result of her frustration, Morales began creating her own maps, and the series was born. “Topographies of a Place to Know” is a series of imaginary, emotional, and psychological maps that relate to the perception of home and the persistence of memory; these concepts are an overarching theme throughout her current work. Morales continues her cogitation over identity and the evolving nature of home as memories, circumstances, spaces, and perceptions change.
