BALTIMORE,Md. — The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center opens a unique solo exhibit entitled, Multicolours, featuring the works of German artist Dominic Martin Gilberto Marin on Saturday, July 18, 2015. The exhibit will be available for viewing through August 16th. This is the second solo exhibit for Marin at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center in the past four years. Multicolours will feature twenty (20) new works by Marin ranging from abstract works on paper to large works on canvas. The exhibit which is open and free to the public will be held at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center, 847 North Howard Street, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 18 , 7 – 9 p.m.
Marin’s work offers a vibrant, unrestricted palette, exemplifying his gravitation towards color theory and the effect it has on the human psyche. In this way, Marín imagines a direct communication between himself and the viewer, one which might touch the viewer with a higher spirituality. Marín establishes large unique color combinations that dance in harmony, to awaken the viewers’ emotions and convey a deep and grand spiritual drama. Says Marin:
The emerging abstract expressionist painter’s primary mode of living has always been focused on his psyche, taking things in through intuition. His secondary mode is external, where he deals with things according to how he feels about them, or how do they fit into his personal value system. His work is entirely based on spontaneity and intuition, which he trusts above all else. His art makes him seem very protective of his inner self, sharing only what he chooses to share, and when he wants to share it.
Returning to the Eubie Blake Cultural Center after a very successful initial solo exhibit, Marin is committed to making a new artistic statement as strong and successful as the first.
For more than three decades, the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center has sought to bring creative expression and urban consciousness to Baltimore through visual and performing arts education and development opportunities for children, youth and adults in our community.
The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center is open Wednesday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday by appointment only.
