Morena was born in Modena in January, 1965. An artist very sensitive to the needs of the society around her, Morena Beltrami does not hide behind the futile and deceiving masks of those who "remain silent and consent", but manages to transpose into images her obvious social discomfort, thus making unique and highly expressive works. Her thoughts take shape and come to life on canvas with the help of strong and intense colours, filling spaces here and there in a chaotic and dynamic way, sometimes expressing anger and other times being poetic and evocative. Only on the surface the emerging forms seem meaningless, but nothing is ever left to chance. With the help of coloured plasters and acrylic pens, the forms soon take on the programmed and explicit connotations of dark, sometimes gloomy shapes, damned characters and restless souls which represent the "cries" of the common people, the denied justice of the innocent and sometimes the restless soul of the artist herself, capable of reaching the heart, head and soul of the observer. 2015: Collective Royal Arcade Gallery London - Collective Tacheles Berlin 2016: Collective Art Moore House London - Collective Quirinus Gallery Stockolm Collective at JMC Gallery Mid-Town New York
