Antonio Ballester Moreno
Antonio Ballester Moreno’s work revolves round the idea of creation, creation as discourse. He draws his creative content from the most basic elements of our nature and culture in order to recondition the gaze.
Embracing the fundamental premise that we are all equal, Ballester Moreno works directly with artistic and creative expressions which are generally considered lesser or amateur arts, putting them on the same level as the “fine” arts. In doing so, he defends the worth and legitimacy of all forms of creation, regardless of the creator’s level of expertise. Creativity is not a matter of skill or intellectual knowledge, because creation is a spontaneous occurrence, like natural phenomena, that should have no intention, purpose or ulterior motive.
An art of creation and a creative life are the twin pillars of free, emancipating ability.
