Dylan Martinez
Water Bag 12 - Unique Glass Sculpture

2019

$1,950

About

Glass artist Dylan Martinez was born in 1985 in Wisconson. Martinez’s crystal clear glass sculptures are inspired by perceptions of reality. The artist is red-green colorblind, therefore his work is driven by a curiosity of perception. The trapped movement of the rising bubbles and the gesture of the forms convince the eye that the sculptures are just as they appear- bags of water. Martinez's crystal clear sculpture is both hollow and solid H2O/SiO2 hot sculpted glass which is hand molded entirely by the artist. This three-dimensional sculpture measures 13 inches high by 7 inches wide and has a depth of 4.5 inches. It is signed at the bottom by the artist. This sculpture can be placed on any flat surface. Free delivery in the local Los Angeles area. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping are also available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included. In regards to his work, the artist states: “Our vision has the greatest effect on our understanding of the world. Through my artwork, I create scenarios in which the viewer must question their capacity to navigate between reality and illusion.” Most recently Martinez has completed a one month residency in Murano, Italy, a region famous for high quality artisan glass. Martinez’s sculptures are sought after internationally and his work has been exhibited in America, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, as well as Taiwan. His work has been included in several notable publications, including Interior Design Magazine, American Craft Magazine, and Aesthetica Magazine. “What is fascinating is that our desires often override our true perception of reality and you believe what you think is visible as the truth”
