Oliver Marsden
Gloucestershire - Reino Unido - 1973

La práctica artística de Oliver Marsden gira en torno a la percepción y las posibilidades del movimiento y la fluidez del color, el sonido y el orden. Marsden explora el comportamiento y las propiedades de la pintura, creando pulsaciones y ecos de color, utilizando figuras geométricas - especialmente el círculo - como sujeto. La evolución de su práctica lo ha llevado a la experimentación con otros materiales como la fibra de vidrio y el aluminio. Evocando la radiación de la luz y de las ondas concéntricas así como su profundo conocimiento sobre las propiedades del sonido, la proporción áurea, la espiral logarítmica y la consonancia del cosmos, el trabajo de Marsden pretende reconciliar los mundos de la alta tecnología y de la pintura tradi- cional; el mundo de lo orgánico y lo digital.

Oliver Marsden (Gloucestershire, 1973)vive y trabaja en Gloucestershire, Reino Unido. Estudió la licenciatura y la maestría en dibujo y pintura en The Edinburgh College of Arts, Reino Unido.

Entre sus exposiciones en la Galería Hilario Galguera se encuentran Elementos suspendidos e Index: Propuestas en la era de la simulación en la galería en la Ciudad de México y La llegada de los barbaros en la galería en Leipzig, Alemania.

Ha recibido los premios Prince’s Trust, Hope Scott-Trust-Development, y el Scottish Arts Council-Development. Así como las be- cas, Andrew Grant y William Gilles Travel. Oliver Marsden obtuvo la residencia Horiuchi en Nagano, Japón en 2009. Su trabajo forma parte de colecciones como Murderme de Damien Hirst, el museo de arte Kresge en Michigan, E.U.A., la colección David Roberts en el Reino Unido, y el St. James Group en Londres.

Oliver Marsden’s artistic practice revolves around the perception and possibilities of movement and fluidity in color, sound and order. Marsden explores the behaviour and properties of painting creating pulsations and echoes of color, using geometric figures - especially the circle - as subject. The evolution of his practice has led to the experimentation with other materials such as fiberglass and aluminium. Evoking the radiation of light and concentric waves as well as his profound knowledge on the properties of sound, the concept of the centre as origin, the Golden Section, the logarithmic spiral and the music of the spheres, Marsden’s work attempts to reconcile the worlds of high-technology and of traditional painting; the organic and the digital realms.

Oliver Marsden (Gloucestershire, 1973) lives and works in Gloucestershire, U.K. He studied a BA and an MFA at The Edinburgh College of Arts, U.K.

Among his shows at Hilario Galguera Gallery, Marsden has been in Suspended Elements, Index: Proposals in the Era of Simulation at Hilario Galguera Gallery in Mexico City and The Arrival of the Barbarians at Hilario Galguera Gallery in Leipzig, Germany.

He has received several prizes: Prince’s Trust, Hope Scott-Trust-Development and the Scottish Arts Council - Development, as well as scholarships, Andrew Grant and William Gilles Travel. Oliver Marsden obtained the 2009 residence in Nagano, Japan.
