The bright lively colors just seem to jump off the canvas, or from the wood, depending on what material Marcel Pinas has used as underground for his works of art. It is impossible not to recognize the hand of this Aucan artist in the selection of works he has produced especially for the Sanfika exhibition. It is also crystal-clear that Pinas is evolving, growing; and that a deepening has taken place. His art has matured, without losing the playfulness which is also typical for Pinas’ style. Art is a means to communicate, according to Pinas. ‘I líve in this society, I’m part of it. I try to voice my personal feelings on this issue and I use my art as a vehicle to do so.’ His critical vision on society is most obvious, can even almost be grasped literally, in a series of mixed media works. In this series, aluminum spoons symbolize the nation sinking to an all-time low beneath the red thread of values and standards.
