LEFT TO PONDER: An Exhibition by Fernanda Martínez
Opening Friday, May 6 @ 6pm Artist Talk
Saturday May 7 & 14, Noon – 5pm
My work references nature, it focuses on transformation. I describe my process as experimental and intuitive, where reflection is present in every aspect. My inspiration comes fundamentally from memory and observation, along with personal experience.
In my creative practice I construct paintings where colors and shapes are more than simple elements; I think about each piece as a unique entity that comes to life as the process evolves. My intention is to generate reactions and make people question their own experiences. I want to contemplate people’s emotions.
My paintings are visual stories, holding many hours of self-conversations and joy.
