Artist Statement:

Whether inspired by the sheer beauty of nature or urban surrounds, Martina’s work is vibrant and expressive, as she strives to use colour, design, rhythm and texture as the means of expression.

Using abstract expressionism as an attitude, whereby the true visual representation of an object is not her solitary consideration, Martina is more importantly concerned with her subconscious and uninhibited emotional response to the stimuli. Martina seeks to capture a moment in time, a place or an ambience that holds significance to her and in turn evoke an emotional response from the viewer.

Working primarily in acrylic mixed media, Martina employs bold, rich colours and spontaneous brushstrokes to create an emotional tableaux in an abstract expressionist manner.

 “Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life” Pablo Picasso

Art expands our horizon of understanding by reflecting and inspiring our lives.

Whether inspired by the sheer beauty of nature or urban surrounds, Martina’s work is bold, rich, vibrant and expressive, as she strives to use colour, design, rhythm and texture as the means of expression by seeking out the detail presented in the naturally occurring shapes, patterns and colours of the subject, thereby reducing it to its essence.

Using abstract expressionism as an attitude, whereby the true visual representation of an object is not her solitary consideration, more importantly Martina is concerned with her subconscious and uninhibited emotional response to the stimuli, thereby emphasising an artist’s liberty to convey attitudes and emotions in all its ambiguity and contradiction through non-representational means. It is not about reading the narrative but rather reacting to it. Martina seeks to capture a moment in time, a place or ambience that holds significance to her and in turn evoking an emotional response from the viewer.

Martina works in a variety of media, and the canvas is a record of her spontaneous experience with the medium and colour.
