Genre: Visual Artist
Marin Abell’s itinerant practice is fueled by a desire to en/joy his environment and culture through entanglement; his goal is to beguile communities in ways powerful enough to sustain attention and deliberate reflection. He is inspired by the shape shifting trickster who walks the boundary between the imaginary and the real, and erases the distinction along the way. Marin was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and grew up in southeastern Virginia. He teaches Sculpture at the University of Alabama Huntsville.
