Amadeo Morelos Favela

Region: Midwest

My work is an attempt to understand my relationship to others. I am concerned with the connection between the reward of admiration and the pursuit of empathy. I wish to display the craving for core human sensations in a culture moving at an overwhelmingly fast pace. My work is my own search for belonging on the verge of a grotesque world. Using humor and absurdity, I like to navigate social contradictions. I am interested in superficiality as a basis for understanding more intrinsic human qualities: a search for the spiritual through the material.
