Art Angels presents 'Warp Drive', the highly anticipated solo exhibition by Spencer “Mar" Guilburt which takes its viewer on a journey through time-travel and visualizing the unseen utilizing his signature fire flowers. It is the idea of a wormhole, a tunnel which links two points in space and time that inspired the creation of Spencer's newest series.
Through the use of movement and rhythm and the interplay of color,
shape and structure, MAR utilizes and explores the power of repetition
and its ability to reveal greater insights. He uses shapes and geometric
forms, as well as dramatic color schemes to develop his own visual
language, convey a sense of feeling and bring the viewer closer to his
heart. These “Fire Flowers", as he calls them, are more expressive and
gestural, than they are mathematical. As one spends more time exploring
these new works, a deeper meaning emerges and unlocks a whole new
layer of complexity. More than anything, his paintings are feelings as
much as they are imagery.
Though the theory of relativity allows for the existence of wormholes,
they are a phenomenon that has never been observed. Imagining the
unimaginable is where the journey through “Warp Drive" begins. With
this series, Mar sought out to visualize what these wormholes might look
like and illustrate a bridge between time and space. With black lines as the
single constant in the collection, each piece is, in its own right, a distinct
hypothetical perspective on a wormhole.
