America Martin: Virtual Tour

This content requires HTML5/CSS3, WebGL, or Adobe Flash Player Version 9 or higher.

This show of America Martin's work includes bold, large scale paintings as well as intimate drawings. The large scale works on paper are knock outs. Typically, works on paper have a perception of fragility because of the nature of the substrate. However, Martins' large pieces on paper, like the figures she depicts, have the appearance a strong survivor. They are created on a heavy duty handmade Japanese paper which allows Martin to apply thick layers of paint as well as other elements. The result is powerful, there is nothing weak about them.
