America Martin, the young and increasingly sought-after Columbian-American painter, will be featured in her second solo exhibition at the Mark Gallery in Englewood, NJ from January 12 through March 2, 2013. The show opens with a cocktail reception in honor of the artist on January 12th from 5 to 7 pm.
Martin’s works have received a great amount of critical acclaim, and her roster of famous fans continues to grow. Her works currently hang in the homes of Danny DeVito, Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Juliette Lewis, and Giovanni Ribisi.
The painting titled “Woman in the Woods,” is a great example of Martin’s dynamic style. Typical of her grouped subjects, Martin’s “Woman in the Woods” shows women engaged in ritual dancing, rendered with such energy that even with her flat cubist plane, they appear to move right off the canvas. Her color palette is both bold and limited, demonstrating her powerful ability to choose colors that are expressive of specific sentiments and personalities.
Martin works with acrylics, oil, oilsticks, and charcoal. She chooses subjects whose vitality is apparent; in the artists’ words, she is “inspired by joy, by vigor, boldness, [and] dignity.”
Martin also cites influence from colorists Rothko and Gauguin, and describes her very first inspiration as a book about Van Gogh she bought at a garage sale for a quarter when she was only 9 years old. Martin’s bold, expressive lines and unique understanding of the human form are also reminiscent of Picasso and Cezanne.
Martin’s studio space in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, pictured above, is as unique as her paintings. Not only has she set up the large space to allow her to work on multiple oversized paintings at once, but she also uses it as a communal space to share with other local artists
