The Omaha Riverscape , 2008-09

by Jesus Moroles


Mediums: Granite, Stone, Water

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge Street

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Moroles’ work reflects the ideas of eternity, stability, and longevity. “The stone itself is the starting point, and I feel a connection to it,” he said, adding that he aims to “make the stone important by drawing attention to it and to show the finished pieces as a result of an interaction between man and nature.” Moroles chooses pieces that can retain a suggestion of their original formation after he has worked on them. He does not use plans or drawings, but rather allows the stone’s veins, colors, and textures to guide him. In a process he calls “tearing granite,” Moroles gradually cracks the stone with “wedges” and “feathers,” never completely sure of the results but always pursuing his masterpiece. He always stops his work at the moment it reaches the fine line between natural and manmade. Certain forms appear again and again in Moroles work—the totem, obelisk, and stele—reflecting similar monuments erected since prehistoric times around the world. Some of his innovations in granite include pieces, such as the Broken Earth water wall that is part of the Joslyn installation, that appear woven into a fabric. The Joslyn museum purchased this piece with funds from the Patron Circle for Contemporary Art and Ted and Helen Kolderie, 2009.
