THE MAJESTY OF EMOTION
Javier Marín is a Mexican sculptor. During his artistic beginnings he used only clay, but shortly after, he began incorporating bronze and experimenting with new materials. Polyester resin mixed with various organic ingredients like tobacco, soil, amaranth seeds, rose petals and dry meat fibers became familiar aspects of his work.
His sculptures are a meditation on the condition of man. He creates human figures that are extremely dynamic and majestic, yet at the same time look pained and intensely emotional. With incredible mastery and intuitive talent, Marín molds and manipulates forms to indicate the fragility and deterioration of the human body and flesh, and emphasizes character and emotion through details, textured surfaces, and the interplay of light and shadow.
