Press Release

Imlay Gallery is pleased to present the hand-coloured etchings of Cuban printmaker and book artist Norberto Marrero. The exhibit will run from September 14, 2017 through October 20, 2017. Marrero's work reflects a poetic image, which offers a glimpse into power, class, and gender struggles through metaphors. He also plays with key moments in the history of art, particularly reflected in printmaking, such as the eroticism of the Japanese geisha and Albrecht Durer’s mythical image of the rhinoceros. These images, with their profound poetic and philosophical context, provide interpretations of existence and dream. Dreams in which contemporary man at times gets lost, at times awakens, but to which he never renounces.
