Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present Marina Font’s Mental Maps, a photo-based mixed media exhibition that depicts the artist’s continued interest and expression of the female experience. As a “next chapter” after her series Dark Continents, symbolically illustrating female sexuality in all its capacities and cycles, Mental Maps looks deeper into the psychological and emotional aspects of women. Font embroiders yarn, thread and found textiles onto the photographic surface creating a hybrid environment with a nod to meditation on process. These black and white photographs of the female figure, together with a meticulous weaving of color and design, punctuate the various complexities of women’s thoughts and inner-workings. The laborious and time-consuming process is evident, and also points to traditional historic roles of women. In many instances, a woman’s stream of consciousness is illuminated and / or manifested within the process of ritual, creating a spiritual element to the seemingly mundane.
