Jesu Moratiel

MULTIDISCIPLINARY

Jesu Moratiel is a talented multidisciplinary artist represented by MTArt Agency, who creates installations, sculptures, paintings and 3D animations. Currently residing in Madrid, his eclecticism deepens the intrinsic characteristics of the materials in which he works: the conservationist and insulating nature of the resin as time capsules contrast with its transparency and brightness. As for the digital work, he is interested in its artificial and ephemeral aspects, lost in the archaeology of the network and the flatness of the pixel and LED screen.

Moratiel’s main series reflects on the anthropocene and its environmental impact on nature and its communities. He uses amber pieces to encapsulate thousands of dead bees, the death of these essential communities in our ecosystem is a result of the pesticides used in agriculture and global warming. Far from being limited to the environmental problem that characterises our era, and in particular the catastrophe of bees, Jesu shares with Aristotle, Hume or Manderville the metaphor between apicultural and human societies to delve into concepts such as the loss of identity and the individuality in favour of a mass report or the dissolution of geopolitical borders. Not surprisingly, Jesu attached to these works a document in which he authorises the international scientific community to use them for research purposes, whether biological, chemical, technological.

Moratiel’s work can be found in private collections and foundations such as Artemizia Foundation, La Gaceta de Salamanca or the Caja Duero Foundation, and he has worked with several Spanish and international galleries such as Cerquone Project, Madrid and Caracas, LA Studio, Madrid and Gallery Red, Mallorca.
