About the artist

Marynes Avila_ Headshot A multidisciplinary artist concerned with socially engaged practice, Marynes Avila creates work that specifically responds to site and community. Taking inspiration from the wonders of nature and its forms, Avila utilizes repetition to redefine the object and its symbolism offering a subtle platform to often question the consequences of human imprint in the age of the Anthropocene. Meticulous drawing, microphotography, micrographic digital video, and digital photography are central to the artist’s process and an essential component of Avila's oeuvre, being the catalyst for the artist's large-scale installations. 

View the exhibition ‘Walking Among Trees’ by Marynes Avila in the Glass Cube at the front of Cube 37 Gallery from 2 March to 22 April. View from the street front 24/7.
