“The Eye, The Vessel, and The Spell”, David Castillo Gallery, Miami, FL, March 2 – April 6, 2013
The Eye, The Vessel, and the Spell cruises the banquet demarcating Mar's oeuvre, including glossy magazines, club music, and the supernatural energy that fuels pop culture and ancient mythologies. Mar delights in the corporeality of objects, augmenting and storing with a charismatic indulgence often reserved for cyberspace. Mar flaunts the contraband of his quotidian life, practicing shamanic swag with the New Sincerity. He embraces strolling, after Balzac, as the "gastronomy of the eye," digesting lived into aesthetic experience.
