Martin Solymar – Ghosts From the Manzanilla Road

09.03- 24.03 2024

In “Ghost From The Manzanilla Road” we are presented with the portrait Young Eric Blackman. He is depicted with a cane, ready to lead us into a world of heightened presence and sublime elements, of palm trees, wetlands, stormy weather, starry nights, and a luminous dolphin. The environment created by Solymar is an enchanting fusion of influences from the Caribbean, music, and Norse mythology where the imagery claims the inward perception. The exhibition features oil paintings, wet-on-wet acrylic paint on jute canvas, reliefs in Brazilian marble, and limestone.
