Marzan’s work explores the shifting, changing and constantly evolving negotiation of geographical spaces in relation to individual and cultural identities and histories. From depictions of vast geographic locations and notions of national identity to the intimate rooms of a house under construction, his work seeks to map transient spaces as fluid sites of exchange. Through references to the hurricanes that often plague islands and shape the architecture and landscape, Marzan’s work explores ideas of deconstruction and reconstruction as means by which to interpret cultures from the Caribbean, Gulf Basin and US South.
