Contemporary Photo Mixed Media Heartstrings by Marina Font in Miami!

One of my favorite contemporary artists, photo-based mixed media, Marina Font has an exciting new exhibit running through March 18, 2017 at Dina Mitrani Gallery in Wynwood - not to miss!  

 These photos are the best I could capture given many are up higher or framed, 
thus the glare, but you get the idea.  
"The exhibition depicts the artist’s continued interest and expression of the female experience. As a “next chapter” after her series Dark Continents, symbolically illustrating female sexuality in all its capacities and cycles, Mental Maps looks deeper into the psychological and emotional aspects of women. Font embroiders yarn, thread and found textiles onto the photographic surface creating a hybrid environment. These black and white photographs of the female figure, together with a meticulous weaving of color and design, punctuate the various complexities of women’s thoughts and inner-workings. The laborious and time-consuming process is evident, and also points to traditional historic roles of women. In many instances, a woman’s stream of consciousness is illuminated and / or manifested within the process of ritual, creating a spiritual element to the seemingly mundane." - Dina Mitrani Gallery 

Marina Font was born in Argentina in 1970 and studied design at the Martin Malharro School of Visual Arts, Mar del Plata, Argentina.
