“J. Willott Gallery hosted an extremely successful and well-attended America Martin exhibition Nov. 24. A Colombian-American fine artist based in Los Angeles, Martin has expanded her well known painting and sculpture works to include new surprises in 3-dimensional art. As basis for her enigmatic works, America sites universal truth as inspiration for creating derivations in indigenous subject matter via the human form.

Martin’s work — and indeed her own personality — present a sense of enthusiasm and hope. While people are Martin’s primary subject, she does depict her artistry in abstract form. Color, texture, size, and shape all combine to present her signature work.

J. Willott Gallery opened in 2007 with a focus on museum-quality contemporary artwork from the country’s most accomplished artists. The gallery features a new 5,000-square-foot contemporary art space with 22-foot high ceilings, glass concrete floors, state-of-the-art lighting, and one of the region’s most highly regarded roster of artists.”

JoAnne Artman Gallery at Context Pier 94 New York

We are pleased to announce our participation in the second edition of CONTEXT New York taking place May 3 - 7, 2017 in Manhattan. The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street.  JoAnne Artman Gallery will be showcasing the work of America Martin and John “Crash” Matos: two artists with distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet linked through an expressive formal approach. Martin continues her exploration of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Crash’s recent work takes his iconic visual language of the classic New York graffiti underground to fresh considerations of abstraction utilizing the spray paint medium.

Bursting with life, vigorous in line, form and color, America Martin’s work showcases her unique and humanist approach to portraying the natural world as well as the human form.

Martin works in a diversity of mediums including painting, mixed media on cotton rag paper, and sculpture. Beyond her affinity for modernism and iconic forms, Martin’s work is informed by her intensive approach to material and process. Rooted in art historical lexicon, Martin’s work is narrative of the various cultural, anthropological as well as sociocultural frameworks inherent in her subject matter.

Nudes, Musicians, and Other Figures Populate America Martin’s New Paintings at Joanne Artman Gallery

Her hometown of Los Angeles, and the vibrant diversity of its population, moves her. When about town, she takes mental snapshots of the people she sees all around her, and then transfers the sights stored in her head onto paper and canvas. She also paints people she knows, transforming both strangers and acquaintances alike into the blocky, heavily outlined, flattened figures populating her compositions. A selection of her most recent paintings—featuring such enduring motifs as female nudes, musicians, and portraits of indigenous peoples—comprise her new exhibition.
