Black Cloud by Carlos Amorales

View all 8 Photos

Black Cloud, a simple but sprawling installation by artist Carlos Amorales, debuted at Yvon Lambert in Paris in 2007, and has been shown at several international venues since then. The installation is comprised of thousands of black paper cutout moths, which are affixed to gallery walls and ceilings in coalescent, unified compositions that occupy as much space as is available. Previous works by Amorales have also utilized silhouette-inspired imagery of insects, arachnids, and other creatures frequently associated with dark connotations. The Mexico City-based artist studied in the Netherlands and has shown work in London, Paris, Miami, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, New York, Dublin, and Philadelphia. He is represented by Yvon Lambert.
