Jorge Marin : CONVERSACIONES / CONVERSATIONS

Victoria Arrodillada en Balsa
The figural works in the exhibition illustrate Marin’s inner dialogues, aspirations seen within an admittedly surrealist context.

The impetus for much of Marín’s previous bodies of work derived from current events, ancient history, experiments in pushing materials of his sculptures to their structural limits and observation of others. With the works for Conversaciones Marín delved inside himself as he explains:
“The bronze sculptural series I am presenting here revolves around the theme of autoreflection, which I arrived at out of necessity to know more about myself, establishing a dynamic that began with silence to listen to myself, have a conversation with and finally arrive at the most honest understanding of myself possible, to comprehend and respect my true nature.
The exhibition “Conversations†takes the form of people in or on boats, spheres or frames, in reflective attitudes inviting the spectator to look at himself and after all, why not, to open their own internal dialogue.â€
Jorge Marín, born in 1963 in Michoacán, Mexico, comes from a distinguished family of artists and is himself a renowned sculptor and painter in Mexico. A graduate of the Escuela Nacional de Conservacion, Restauracion y Museographica “Manuel del Castillo Negrete†, INAH-SEP, México, D.F., he spent several years in museums doing conservation and restoration before dedicating his full attentions to his own artwork. His works have been exhibited at the Museo de Arte Moderno, México; Museo Universitario del Chopo, México; Museo Monterrey, N.L., México; Museo MARCO, Monterrey, México; Museo Nacional de la Estamapa, México; Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, Ca.
