Marylin Cavin

Born in: 1960


Marylin Cavin's work is based on the mental transformation of the subject taken out of its usual context, that is on the transformation of the relations between objects as we conceive them. On the surface, what we see on canvas is easy to understand, because figuration allows us to easily identify objects. There is something uncertain about the context in which they are placed though, about the bidimensional abstract background.

The canvas is actually a theatrical space where the subject is performing in another reality. The abstract background is the stage and the figurative elements perform as actors, giving a dramatic dimension to the works.

"And, as actors do, the subject transforms itself. Are the stones what they appear to be, mere stones? Somethimes they can be identified as stones, but they are actualy symbols. Are they avatars of stones? They seem rather light and in search of a certain frivolous dimension in their dramatic expression. We then become the audience of a graphic comedy."
