Ancizar Marin, Your Heart in my Hands
2022, Acrylic and Car Paint, 14H x 16W x 10D In. Ancizar Marin's sculptures and installations, for which he is best known, composed of fiberglass and resin, and finished to a high gloss with car paint in a dazzling array of hues, can be found scaling walls, rappelling down windows, leaning against columns, and perching on lintels. Evoking teams of rock climbers, window washers, fish, birds and circus performers, suspended high above ground on screws or wires that are looped, lassoed, and threaded about them, engaged in gravity-defying feats, the active forms charm young and old. Ancizar reflects on life not being easy as it requires effort and work yet through the movement, color, and form of his work, his purpose is to invoke a smile.
