LAS MANUELAS X RAUL MARINA
Raul Marina, a multifaceted Spanish artist, has dared to face the large format, creating this trilogy of self-portraits.
Self-portraits are with no doubt the most deep analysis that may exist of an artist. Since Ancient Times, artists have been playing with the idea of immortalizing themselves and today, due to the new technologies, self-portraying is a common practice. Thanks to selfies, humans have found a way to create and design how they want to be and to look like to others.Through these pieces, that perform the non-finito self-portraits of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Alexander Heubel and Léon Bonnat, we think over the power of the image; the unfinished and changing the construction that we create each day of ourselves.
Raúl is passionate about art and philosophy and develops these topics through his artworks to find different experiences and patterns.
