Art begins at that point where living is not enough to express one’s life.
“Art begins at that point where living is not enough to express one’s life.”
Pepa Martínez creates large-format paintings with acrylics on canvas.
Her work is harmonious and balanced, evoking the grand vastness of the cosmos, the organic quality of life, and the connections produced by the digital age. Martínez uses graceful lines, limited color palettes, and asymmetrical balance to captivate her viewers. Her work is both joyful and meditative; each canvas is akin to an intricate dance, communicating something about the true core of existence. “I try to portray the energies that surround us and capture the essence of who we are,” she explains. “I try to express, through color and form, the love and respect for nature.”
Martínez paints with acrylics which she makes herself out high-quality pigments, bringing her closer than many artists to the raw origin of her art. This connection can be seen in her paintings; her ability to make her compositions sing is truly remarkable.
Pepa Martínez was born in Spain, and her family nurtured and supported her artistic inclination. She has shown her work in numerous exhibitions.
