For this solo exhibition, Armando Mariño employs an expanded visual vocabulary that departs from his former style, to depict the global upheaval of 2011. Dynamic, anonymous figures engaged in acts that reference real footage are placed in rich, fluorescent and abstracted backdrops. Faces, obscured by either masks or the painter’s hand, correspond to Marino’s sublimation of the source material.
An essay by noted art critic and historian, Elvia Rosa Castro titled The Exiled Evidence (El Destierro de la Evidencia) will accompany the exhibition. There will be an opening reception—RSVP only—on May 2nd from 6-‐8 pm. To RSVP, please contact email@example.com.
