It is this final layer to the limited edition, Marquez’ original handiwork, that makes each canvas a definitive and distinct original work of art.
Galaxies and solar systems are often what people say they see in the work of Socrates Marquez. Spheres are planets and splatters trace stars, comets and asteroids. While his art is most often a flowing expression of thought and feeling, Marquez has deliberately hidden two figures, a female profile and a reclining man contemplating the universe in which they live.
Each splatter painting is created with both deliberate and unplanned actions. His movements, the effect of gravity, the distance between his brush and the canvas and the force of his application all come into play in the creation of his painting. Each single drip or splatter speaks more than one may think.
