This is the exhibition space for Juanjo García Martín‘s exhibition – Asphalt Seas (Mars de Asfalto) Collection.
Juanjo has expanded his collection of rings from his Organic Collection to brooches and other objects.
They emphasize the enormous plasticity through their forms and their volume that refer to their own life in nature and in the process of decomposition. Juanjo’s proximity to the sea in Málaga, Spain has also left a notable imprint in his work.
I have always felt a special fondness for creating rings, although in the period of these last years the language of my work was transmitted through the appearance of the brooch. This allowed me to be able to introduce a concept in the form of a plane, with ideas that are transformed into canvas, telling stories with a more poetic language.
The idea of this language revolves around the cities, and everything that they shelter, its buildings, its streets, the agglomerations of people creating infinite prescriptions of colors, the cultural variety that builds parallel histories, and the line with the volume that Are always present, along with the signs of the passage of time in their gray facades, where in the end the individual moves on manufactured summits, as a unitary being, driven through asphalt seas.
…. Caught in nearby cities moments where everyone is unitary and the individual moves seeking poetry in the plains of asphalt and its opaque colors of prefabricated tops to accommodate everyone in a set of unit blocks ……
