JORGE MARTIN and PABLO SORIA
The Schneider Gallery is pleased to invite you to wander the pathways, landscapes, and memory spaces captured in the works of Argentinean artists Jorge Martin and Pablo Soria.
Both artists use the world of reality to recall memories half dissolved, dreams unacknowledged, and desires of the unconscious.
Martin grounds our experience with a figure, while Soria allows the viewer direct access to the empty landscapes of his youth. Martin works with chromogenic prints, and Soria with transparent litex film laid over abstract acrylic paintings. The final prints of both Martin and Soria have a degraded quality that alludes to time- lost, past, fleeting.
Standing before the woks of Jorge Martin and Pablo Soria the viewer is overcome by mystery and allure. There is a strange sense of familiarity, and a desire, a longing to uncover a forgotten truth.
Pablo Soria is a photographer, painter, and installation artist who uses self-portraiture to place himself within a layered narrative structure: a compilation of time, stories, illusions and recollections of the immigrant experience. The evidence of many stages within his process, along with physical layering of photography and sandblasted glass allow for a slow unveiling of the artist as character-voyeur, a double role which can also be played by the observer. His is an autobiographical vision of time, shaded by an obsession with memories of the place left behind, love, childhood, death and loss. The work is about reflection, but it is also an invitation to a dialogue with the observer
Pablo does not hesitate to cross over and combine mediums. Whether painting, object-making, photography or installation, the artist contends that they are all part of the narrative structure played out on a large screen.
