Artist: Jorge Marín
With over 25 years of artistic work, Jorge Marín 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 challenges gravity and rotates in space supported on one point.
His work represents the struggle between the coldness of bronze and the diverse emotions that his subjects evocate: 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 depersonalise his sculptures and become another medium of expression of a body that contains universal symbols in itself.
