Martí Cormand

Born in Barcelona in 1970, Cormand lives and works in New York. 

Martí Cormand’s work attests to the coalescence of time, or rather, of an intangible past that can only be grasped in the present through intuition. According to the artist, our present reaffirms the concept of an "eternal return," the idea that our existence is cyclical in nature instead of linear. His images also become a byproduct of entangled temporality in cyberspace, where Cormand often derives his source material. Qualities of transparency, density, light, shadow, and extreme precision are applied to either bring the works to a point of self-consciousness, or to articulate the oblivion of the subjects. Selected exhibitions include: Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York (2016); Galería Cayón, Madrid, ES; Galería Casado Santapau, Madrid, ES (2014); Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York; Galeria etHall, Barcelona, ES (2013); Portland Museum of Art, OR (2010 - 2011); Arranz-Bravo Foundation, Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, ES; Galerie Lelong, New York (2010); Aldrich Emerging Artist Award Show, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT (2007); Villa Arson, Nice, FR (2006).
