Connectivity – New Paintings and Works on paper
Opens May 13th: Through June 9th, 2016
In May, TEW will present a solo exhibition of America Martin, a successful Los Angeles based artist whose reputation is spreading with exhibits in galleries and museums across the country.
America Martin describes herself as a painting anthropologist whose main focus is an exploration of the human form and themes of humanity. But she is known for acrylic and oil on canvas paintings and mixed media on paper drawings with bold, often sunny color palette; big, open forms; a confident, muscular line; and human figures that take on a monumental sense of scale. In the hands of a lesser artist the combination would be disastrous and heavy handed, but America Martin, an artist in her mid-thirties, commands these powerful elements to come together so perfectly that the resulting images give us pause in the way few artists can. America’s strongest influences have been Matisse, Picasso, Leger and Chagall, but in the last year her emotional reach and painterly vocabulary have noticeably expanded and one cannot help but sense she is rapidly setting herself apart from her peers by the way she propels beauty, vulnerability, refinement and poetry into our world with astonishing precision and force.
Martin's work is featured in many international collections as well as those of well know public figures such as Danny Devito, Kirsten Dunst, Ted Dansen, Juliette Lewis, Simon Helberg, John Ratzenberger and Giovanni Ribisi -- and many other important collections with lesser name recognition.
America grew up in Hollywood. She was a child actor from age 5 - 16 and was featured in numerous commercials, television shows and films, including Disney's 1991 film "Rocketeer." She attended the Cossroads School of Arts & Sciences in Santa Monica and apprenticed with Vernon Wilson of the Art Center College of Design; then later studied at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
