ABOUT THE ARTIST, LUIS CORNEJO
With sold out shows in 2007, 2008 and 2010, Cornejo’s ability to masterfully combine acrylic and oil to fuse hyperrealism with a highly stylized, flat 2-dimensional style has been duly noted. Cornejo has exhibited individually and collectively in Nicaragua, Panama, El Salvador, Mexico, Canada, and Germany. Cornejo’s career has skyrocketed in recent years, with a one year paid scholarship to Berlin (2009-10), top awards from the Museum of Art, MARTE in 2008 a well as the National Art Awards in 2003 and 2001.
ARTIST STATEMENT ON NESTING
These are a group of birds that build a nest in the head of the character. When painting them I thought about how these days we allow strangers, social networks and the like to be installed (nest) in our head and reconfigure our tastes, our desires and how we see ourselves and want to be seen.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Designer Denise Morrison and Laguna Beach-based gallery saltfineart have been closely intertwined since the gallery opened in 2009. As a reputable collector of museum caliber art, saltfineart has been a key source for Denise when selecting art for design clients seeking the most original, unique and often transcendent pieces whose stories are as rich as their composition.
We are thrilled to debut this hand-selected collection of pieces from saltfineart at House of Morrison. Each piece has been hand-selected by Denise for its one-of-a-kind design and history.
Since 2009, saltfineart has been exhibiting contemporary works from around the world created by both world-renowned and emerging artists. The gallery specializes in museum caliber Latin American Contemporary art, where their roots run deep and whose talent and commitment they are passionate about sharing.
