The Celestial Queen-dom
Carmen Christina Moreno
The Celestial Queen-dom
I am a person who feels deeply about the beauty and mystery of life. I am motivated by difficult existential questions and am always inquisitive. I am a person who believes in the power of transformation. I have an innate connection to the earth, planetary body and literal soil. I come from generations of peoples who have practiced a deep care and respect for the land. This sensibility and nature is innate to my character and creative identity. I was born to a Mexican Man and American Woman, my cultural identity is a part of my story - both Indigenous and European sensibilities reside in my being and artistic practices unfolding new traditions and inherited knowledge. I do my best to listen to wisdoms that have been passed on and let their accumulated presence guide me through life. I am devoted to my journey through the unknown. As I develop my voice, I will continue to share. As I continue to live, I will continue to create.I know no other, wish infinite.
I received my BFA in 2010 from the Kansas City Art Institute in Interdisciplinary Art and Creative Writing with a certification in Community Arts and Service Learning. I am currently working as an independent artist in Kansas City and have exhibited my works and ideas in numerous places all over the world. My pieces are mainly generated by my interest in science, art, philosophy, color theory, quantum mechanics, synesthesia, chaos theory …..basically everything. I maintain a studio practice of experimentation and open-mindedness. In applying the sensibilities of science to art, I attempt to create a visual language that transforms my emotional-intuitive experiences into innovative installations and performances.
The sun is falling and the light breathes in patterns of binary code. As a positive fourth dimension, our genetic sequence informs me that time has become objective. Inside my space of being, the introversion of my reality passes. Notation of documented substance holds no value. The reception of my existence is cognitive. I will leave here soon. Awaiting revolution, I hear an alarm. A great intention of quid pro quo. The intangible idea of home pulls my minds structure back to lucid embellishment. Reflected illusions of the psychological dimension leave me and I go back to the source quantifiable to no one.
