Fernanda Morales Tovar

Visual artist | Mexico

Fernanda Morales Tovar (1992) is a visual artist, whose current practice is linked to a pictorial reflection. On the canvas, she proposes a link between the construction of environment and the construction of symbols to read the written language, because in both of them, she finds as similarity that they correspond to orders modified by individuals and also, they are part of the languages that structure the society.

“I understand painting as a permanent reflection, in which the painter dialogues with his work and his environment.”
