García de Marina – Photographs
The Spanish photographer García de Marina shows a selection of his works at the Art Gallery “Flo Peters Gallery” in Hamburg. The opening was on June 17th and can be visited until July 27th.
The photos that García de Marina shows in this exhibition were taken from the year 2012 to 2019. The exhibition shows the power of the imagination, where each idea, formulated from conceptualization and minimalism, is presented as a colloquium between work and spectator, as an act through which the idea, embodied through symbolism, is finished in the mind of the spectator.
They are works that are contemplated through sight and deciphered in the mind. The objects used by the Spanish artist are usual, familiar, inanimate elements, created to be perceived from a single perspective. From the surrealism and unreality, these objects are recreated in another symbolic category.
García de Marina (Gijón, 1975), started to use object as a form of expression in 2011. He has showed his work in different national and international events (Art Galleries, Art Fairs and Photography Festivals) as the Photo Week DC in Washington, Photo Romania Festival, Photometry Festival in Greece, Festival of Light in Argentina, Bucharest Photo Week, Addis Photo Fest in Ethiopia, Uppsala Fotofestival in Sweden , Yangon Photo Festival in Myanmar, New York Poetry Festival, Xposure International Photography Festival in the UAE and Belgrade Photo Month in Serbia.
In 2018, García de Marina showed “Diálo2” at the Barjola Museum in Spain, a show in which images are exchanged with works of one of the great Spanish artists of the 20th century, Joan Brossa.
In 2019 the photographer showed his last solo exhibition “The Unfinished Word” at the Cervantes Institute in Belgrade.
His work revolves around intuition and ideas, surrealism, the world of the subconscious and dreams. The camera is the tool that allows him to capture the image he has created in his mind.
García de Marina is represented by Gallery 133 (Canada), .M Contemporary (Australia), NoonPowell Fine Art (United Kingdom), Flo Peters Gallery (Germany) and Bluerider Art Gallery (Taiwan).
