The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library in partnership with Uforge recently announced the three-dimensional work of Jamaica Plain-based artist Liliana Marquez will be featured in a new exhibition at the library, part of a rotating art program, according to a press release.
The “Liliana Marquez: RePOPART” exhibition is on view from now through Feb. 25. The exhibition space is located on the lower level of the library.
According to the press release, Marquez, who was raised in Caracas, Venezuela, grew up in a creative, multicultural environment.
“She has dedicated her artistic practice to the concept of reclamation, relying on found and recycled materials–often taken from construction sites–to create sculptural wall-hanging abstractions. Her work is flexible, able to be hung at different angles and orientations, grouped together in different ways or shown stand-alone. Her bright colors and bold shapes reflect her background in graphic design, while the varied textures indicate her interest in mass production and reuse, calling back to the processes of Pop Art. For Marquez, ‘RePOPART is about attitude. RePOPART is an idea that forces us to RE-think ART,’ according to the press release.
