remember…


Jesús Moroles, a sculpture from humble beginnings was once drafted (during the Vietnam War) in the USA. His father a Mexican and his mother a woman from a border town, Jesús knew he would be sent to the front lines with others of visible minority. His chances of coming home alive were slim, as he saw others from his neighborhood go to war and ‘arrived home in a box’. But high marks in math on military exams saved him from that fate and instead landed him in the Air Force as a computer repairman. Upon completion of duty four years later, he used his meager millitary pension to finance his way through art school.

Jesús works in granite leaving 50% of the stone in it’s natural state, while coaxing out some of its other qualities such as transparency, movement and sound. Some of his pieces are interactive, playing music as an instrument would. For more on Jesús, visit:
