Maria Luisa Morando continues her comments on the ocean and the landscape of the coast. Like memories, her images are both familiar and elusive. Morando’s intentionally overexposed images erase the distracting details in the landscape and provide a moment or time without limit. Her scenes offer a true sense of space. As the art critic Michael Buitrón writes, “Because of the lack of sharp detail, it becomes impossible to explore the images for their specificity, and instead they open up and play to any seaside memory the viewer cares to pour into them.”
Maria Luisa Morando is collected privately throughout England, France and Italy and recently sold two photographs at the Foundation For Woman Artists in London England. She has exhibited across the United States, with an emphasis in Southern California.
