Castril-born Juan Mar hosts a street show in Castril for his work "Cain, Duel in Paradise" as a tribute and inspiration to Jose Saramago's novel.
Juan Mar's exhibition 'Cain" aims to defend the ideas of Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago who was so closely connected to Castril, Granada.
Juan Mar's "Cain", a work by Juan Mar, is inspired by Jose Saramago's homonymous novel. It is both a plastic recreation and a personal tribute from the artist from Granada, to whoever was his teacher and friend.
Juan Mar's photography works are complemented by black and white painting, black-and-white painting, and figuration with gestural actions. These techniques and materials are complementary and enhance the expressive potential of the Castril artist.
The exhibition's usual formal elements are the intervened photography and the making of boxes-installations in the style of Joseph Cornell. The formats of the central works are large and contrast with smaller works and objects.
Juan Mar's exhibit toured many cities throughout the Cultural Network of the Sete Sois Sete Luas Fest and can now be seen in the Plaza del Canton every weekend of May and June.
