Presenter Profile: Marc Morin

Artist’s Reception: Sunday, September 26, 2010 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm at the Franklin Square Society Salon Gallery.

Marc Morin, 25, graduated from the Art Institute of Boston (AIB) with the honor of Best Show in Fine Arts in 2007. Since then he as shown in Boston, Springfield and Central Massachusetts in both group and solo shows. In 2006, while a student at AIB, Marc studied painting for a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. Marc’s experience in Italy had monumental influence on his work. Although the paintings echo and reflect his life experiences and even his mood, the paintings are a world onto themselves.
The progression of the work in this show is held together by the genre of landscape. The landscapes reflect the fusion of the emotion and the external reality of a moment in life. As such, they are a landscape of the mind; a clearing of the path that leads the body home. A memory in the mind has both the specificity and vagueness of a moment in time. The landscape exists because of what does not exist and is a nostalgic allegory of the origin. We disclose and we conceal what is hidden and unhidden of our origin. An origin that does not exist is forever lost in the visible.
