Jose Marcano – Puerto Rico
JOSE MARCANO | artist statement
I am a multidisciplinary artist that expresses me through the painting, poetry, sculpture and photography. I record my emotionallycharged entries chronicle the tension and passions of the day-today, using color as the sensory tool.
My work is deeply centered in my social and emotional experiences, powered by the interactions resulting from of a long history of lifeconflicts.
My art convey feelings of loss and despair and in the same time has the balancing multiple dualities at once… strength and fragility…the ephemeral and the enduring… while bearing elements of healing and recovery through the careful process of their making.
During my creative process I establish an intimate connection to the personal that still speaks to collective experiences and universal emotions. In my work I reflect about varied themes as youth, sex, intimacy, and the dialogue of nonsenses, the incomprehensible fact of time… and of life itself.
My work envelops all energy in the vulnerable endeavor of expressing the unexplainable. Meditative lines and beating spirals make their way in a new canvas, black and white charcoal drawings where passion and freedom always surpasses reason.
I try that my art resonate with feelings that are seemingly from personal diaries… yet universally relatable and therefore ultimately accessible to the viewer.
