South Texas College’s Pecan Campus Library presents “Intimacy through Form,” a mixed media exhibit featuring works by Jimena Marin. The exhibit is on view now through Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012 on the first floor of the library, which is located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.
“Ms. Marin uses fluid, minimal shapes to communicate ideas and concepts that are emotionally complex,” explains Dawn Haughey, STC Library Art Gallery associate. “The contrast that she creates between form and meaning adds an aspect of playfulness to subjects that would normally be somber in nature.”
Marin earned her MFA from Texas Tech University and studied the art of Japanese paper (Washi Zoquei) at La Universidad de las Americas in Puebla, Mexico. She currently works as an artist and art professor at Northwest Vista College in San Antonio. Concerning her artwork, she engages in repetitive tasks so that she is able to travel mentally to a place that is different from her reality. “I create visual metaphors by repeating shapes with a rhythm, recording my thoughts, and learning processes,” Marin said.
South Texas College’s Library Art Gallery Program exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
