Mariano Cinat is truly one of those gatekeepers. He extends his family's long arm of pioneering heritage and continues its extraordinary tradition of socially conscious art. His great aunt and uncle, Raquel Forner and Alfredo Bigatti paved the way for many. Forner broke down barriers for women artists and Bigatti instilled great nationalist fervor. Cinat follows suit by helping us reconnect with humanity’s binding grace.
Cinat's work is of grand scale, reminiscent of monumental displays of public grandeur. Within Cinat's world is a quest for reclamation. Power, respect and command lead down paths of infinite recluse.
With untethered mysticism his work transports us to a timeless quarry of semi-lucent architecture and endless landscapes of indeterminable imagination.
Regression of the human Intellect ensues as we are thrown, tumbling down the corridors of our subconscious. Cinat's ever allusive lower level, littered with remnants of lives gone by, is by far vestigial.
By turning perception inside out with minimal referential context, Cinat successfully allows us to suspend our trained thought and expectation to experience more unconventional perspectives. With a moment's calm Cinat sets the stage with the juxtaposition of ambiance and environment, creating an ethereal realm, near magical in origin.
Be not afraid of spiritual idiosyncrasies but rejoice in the continuity of life. Experience the nuance of a master of color and emotion as Cinat refreshes the senses. Awaken from our slumber in a world void of connectivity.
