Carlos Amorales: The Factory

Stedelijk Museum / Amsterdam / Art

“I trained as a painter, but I never really liked it,” says Carlos Amorales, the man whose surname was Aguirre Morales until he changed it to Amorales, which is Spanish for “without morals.” Amorales began working with vector graphics, a type of computer-graphics imaging, in the late 90s, and his chosen figures were spiderwebs, wolves, birds, and planes. He has since drifted further into abstraction, a place where shape, text, typography, and encryption play somewhere between form and fantasy. —E.C.
