Current Exhibition

Marina Font

Miami based photographer Marina Font, known for her long time interest in the expression of the female experience will be debuting a new show at Catherine Couturier Gallery on October 21st, 2017 titled Mental Maps. An opening reception with the artist will take place on Saturday, October 21st from 5-7pm.

The exhibitionwill feature a selection of mixed media artworks from her most recent ongoing series, Mental Maps which intends to metaphorically shed light on the female experience and address the complexities of feminine identity and the human psyche. She visually and manually expresses these intricate mysteries through her exploratory act of drawing with thread, embroidery, fabrics and appropriated crochet pieces onto photographic surfaces to blur the lines between the internal and external spaces of the body. She adds “The central axis of these very intuitive and visceral works is the approach to the female body perceived mainly through three planes: the biological, the psychological and the social, as well as the juxtapositions and connections among these themes.”
