WINGS OF THE CITY
With the support of the Consulate General of Mexico in Dallas, sculptures of internationally renowned Mexican sculptor Jorge Marín will arrive to Dallas for the first time. His artwork will be exhibited in public places in the Downtown Arts District and Uptown Dallas, including the Latino Cultural Center. The exhibit will run from March 7 to May 31, 2015.
With over 25 years of artistic work, Marin has successfully entered into Mexico’s artistic scene and has become a representative of figurative international sculpture. The sculptures of Jorge Marín reflect in bronze the intrinsic strength and force that emanates from its creation and permits him to construct dynamic bodies, full of movement, which challenge gravity and rotate in space supported on one point.
His work represents the struggle between the coldness of bronze and the diverse emotions that his subject’s evoke: the perfect balance of the equilibrists, and his winged figures has become his particular seal. Another notable trait in his work is the mask, an attempt to depersonalize his sculptures and become another medium of expression of a body that contains universal symbols in itself.
