Ann-Michéle Morales’ drawings and sculptures comically delineate societal patterns, fixations, and customs. The artist employs a methodical approach, beginning with the careful study of a contemporary topic, next demarcating its many facets, and ultimately presenting the issue using humor and metaphor.
Morales received her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois in 1997. Her work has been included in exhibitions such as The Dream of a Red Chamber Masquerade Ball, White Box Gallery, New York, NY (2008); La Sala de Arte Latina, Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, TX (2008); Spanglish, Artpace, San Antonio, TX (2005); and CAM 19: New Stars, Finesilver Gallery, San Antonio, TX (2004). She has participated in numerous residencies including, Serie Print Project, Coronado Studios, Austin, TX (2004); Chinati Foundation, Marfa, TX (1999); and Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Maine (1997).
