MURAL

The series 'insomnia' represents the ethereal world of sleep and sleeplessness. A recurrent theme in the works of Martine. Years earlier, she created 'Sleeping head', a work that gives voice to the desire for rest.

 

In a same vein, the work 'falling' represents the intense tumbling that is experienced while 'falling' asleep … 'How do I get out?' reflects the complexity of dreams.

COLLAGES

 

The collages thematize the tension between order and chaos, between the loudness of expression and the quietude of reflection. The creation process confronts the expressive act, that is materialized in painting, with the act of contemplative rearrangement. In this way, the directness and agitation of an expressive painting is tamed. Through their process of creation, these collages bridge the forementioned tension, thereby making it approachable. In these works, composition and color are of central importance.
