POVevolving Gallery is very happy to announce a one person exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Marco Zamora.
For this exhibition, the artist continues his use of a mostly black and white palette depicting the urban landscape, and the often overlooked happenings of ‘everyday’ life. Marco’s paintings include an immense amount of detail that slowly reveals itself as the viewer’s eyes follow the bits of color he includes among the mostly monochromatic images. The artist’s sporadic use of color serve as a guide – or as points of interest – in an otherwise familiar urban context.
From the Artist:
“…these are paintings about present time. They are not only about an unspecified place, but they depict what is happening now. I feel like we are in a transient state which we have always been in and will be. Our culture is one of always needing more, always moving, and always working. It is our nature. Lately, I have been painting the homeless and people of the street because it is real. It reflects the NOW. These images are real experiences that I am recording and re-orchestrating as paintings. The actions of the American… the human condition in the place I inhabit at the moment… ”
In addition to the paintings in the show, Marco will create a sculptural video installation out of bricks, wood and paint. He explains, the installation “is about isolation, looking, and interaction. Since I photograph all of my references anonymously, I want to invite the viewer to into a similar experience. To see, as I see. ”
This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in the US since 2009.
