The encounter with Raul Mora's canvases cannot stay just in a sole moment of observation. His colors and forms find winding ways to get into our senses and pores, to run into our veins, to touch and finally be attached to the story told during the spans of loneliness. If it is true that nothing of what we capture from the outside can pass by unnoticed by the subconscious, the work of the artist is a reiteration of that truth. It is not only the strokes nor the brushes, the crushing colors nor the unending themes. It is everything without mediating more explanation than that of the anxiety of the spirit willing to nurture itself from authenticity. The works are the reflection of the love which feeds them. The force of it's vocation makes Raul Mora to consider painting as a drug, the more you discover it the more you want it. It happens in all those activities one loves. (Blanca Sevilla)

Painting for me is the means to interpret the beauty of nature, to capture an instant, the emotion of a face, the movement of the human form, the heights to which mankind can strive for, the peacefulness of scenery, the joy of a flower. Feelings and emotions all of the grandeur and majesty of Creation. My intention when painting is to transmit the joy of life; interpretations of beauty, emotions and feelings, through color, light and form.
