Marking Time

Justin Garcia’s works are are relics to a time gone by, their crumbling, weathered surface texture serving to transport the viewer back in time; an elegy to a bygone era, they are simultaneously timeless and timely.
Individual, tabular elements form cohesive, albeit compositionally separated fragments, the negative space between the tabular elements embodying the quality of territorial borders, or shattered borders. With this, the universality of a shared human experience superseding boundaries comes to mind.
