New arrival: Rare Authentic Signed Jorge Marin (Mexican, b. 1963) Bronze Nude "Bird Man" S
Rare Authentic Signed Jorge Marin (Mexican, b. 1963) Bronze Nude "Bird Man" Sculpture surmounted on a spherical and marble base.
Jorge Marín is a Mexican sculptor and painter. He has been an active figure in the contemporary art world for the last 25 years. He began to sculpt ceramic in the early 1980s. Bronze has been his preferred material for the last ten years. His work often depicts horses, centaurs, garudas, children, madonnas, acrobats, along with elements such as spheres, masks, arrows, boats and scales. These concepts are consistent with recurring themes such as reflection and balance. He ties his “bird man” objects, such as the one depicted in this sculpture, to centuries of cultural expression. Similar images have been conjured, he notes, by the early Phoenicians and across Europe. His work focuses mainly on the human figure as a metaphor of its own experiences. His style has a strong foundation in the integration of baroque dramatic art with a powerful sensuality and a subtle sense of the perverse. Jorge Marin´s work in sculpture is a compendium of the vital impulses of the human being and his body, which Marin interprets as the landscape of man’s own existence. Arteaga, Agustin (2007).
