KORA MOYA-ROJO

Kora Moya Rojo is a visual artist creating paintings that revolve around fluidity, nostalgia, and womanhood. Rendered in a pulsating palette of cold blues and warm reds, her vibrant works infuse autobiographical, historical, and religious iconographies with a rural sensibility. Examining the complex effects of childhood trauma, female oppression and urban migration, she investigates personal displacement and national identity in symbolic scenarios that overflow with utopian potential. Digitally reconstructing dreams, imaginations and memories into enchanting drawings and canvases, Moya Rojo creates eerie worlds that inhabit the liminal space between the conscious and the unconscious. Her androgynous, embryonic figures stretch beyond the earthly domain to the otherworldly as they hybridise with provincial food, coalesce with existing objects, and mutate with unspecified surroundings. In a continuous metamorphosis, the internal and external forces at play make the familiar foreign, and the foreign disturbingly familiar.

Kora Moya Rojo (b. 1993, Spain) lives and works in London. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the University of Murcia (Murcia, Spain, 2015). Recent exhibitions include ‘Euphoric’ at Procrastinarting (online, 2021), and ‘Every Woman Biennial’ at The Copeland Gallery (London, UK, 2021). Latest features include All She Makes and Friend of the Artist. Moya Rojo is part of the Winsor & Newton private art collection. She also has two upcoming residencies (Joya Air, Spain, 2021) and ArtHouse Pani (Mexico, 2022).
