Marcio Diaz: A Circle Around The Sun
ArtXchange Gallery, Seattle, WA - Feb 4 – Mar 20
Before his 2007 arrival in the US, Marcio Diaz exhibited with other Nicaraguan artists in Germany and El Salvador. His art and architectural studies in Managua and Esteli reinforced influences of built environments, along with colors in nature, such as tropical flowers, parrot feathers and folkloric woven clothing. The new paintings for his third solo show at ArtXchange are an extension of his all-over fi elds of chromatic “bubbles” of color, hovering ceaselessly before our eyes.
