The following excerpt is from a review in ”Our Town Downtown” by Joe Bendik On her sixth One-person Show at the NOHO Gallery in Chelsea, NY:
… In this new Show, Marin explores how women in art and society have evolved over time. By using iconic imagery along with the mundane, she recontextualizes these images to create nonlinear narratives. Doing this makes the historical information seem fresh. In “Ground line” the foundation for this exhibit, which is the horizontal plane on which objects sit, Marin weaves this into all the works, establishing unity while referencing “still” images from the past, thereby reclaiming and redefining their roles as feminine. The result is a new way of viewing traditional materials.
