Kris Lamorena is a London based Filipino artist known for her expressive figurative paintings.
Her subjects are fictional often portraying people at rest in everyday setting. She takes inspiration from her love of old photographs, cinema and her travels. Producing work in series on paper, canvas or wooden panels she explores the different qualities of the mediums working in ink, watercolour, acrylic and oils. She hopes to capture a sentiment, a mood. Both familiar and nuanced her work invites the viewer to their own interpretation and join the conversation about identity and representation.
