Mariño's work deals with rae and power issues. He appropriates well-known works by Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, and Jeff Koons, among others, and manipulates them to expose political and social realities. Working in a similar wein as Robert Colescott, who is his American history series appropriated works by western masters, Mariño questions, in painting, sculpture, and installation, the unwasy relationship between races and between western and non-western cultures. His visual imagery is often in a dialogue between the past and the present. Frequently, he employs a single iconic figure, known as the dreamer, whose dissatisfaction reflects that of colonialized peoples. --(From the Fralin Museum's exhibition catalog "Mi Cuerpo, Mi País: Cuban Art Today")
