America Martin
Figurative/Portrait_Oil/Acrylic/Canvas_Clam Shovel, America Martin

About the Item

America Martin "Clam Shovel" Oil & Acrylic on Canvas 71 x 48 in Framed Exploring the identity of both her namesake and country, LA-based America Martin draws inspiration from her Colombian heritage and the human figure to represent a diverse portrayal of what and who America is. With resounding vulnerability, Martin showcases a reflection of self and of country while simultaneously addressing her individualism and nationality. Refusing to universalize the American dream or experience, she instead meditates on the importance of individual narration and on her own ability to navigate these ideas through artistic outlet. Replete with biographical anecdotes and self-reflections, Martin integrates her strong personality and story telling as she cogitates upon the opportunities and challenges that America, the country, has afforded America, the artist. Sparking conversations about what has and has not succeeded in both her personal experience and in the quest for freedom and eradication of bias, each work is created both to question and to express gratitude. Remaining true to her heritage and integrity as an artist, this retrospective serves as a nostalgic memoir infused with tales of opportunity and Martin’s raw talent. Adhering to her signature style, Martin seamlessly introduces allegory through radical forms and an unmistakable aesthetic sensibility. Strikingly bold in composition and narrative, Martin’s works investigate the framework of humanity as she continues the ubiquitous theme of identity. Offering a hopeful look towards a future of inclusivity and acceptance, Martin’s artwork alludes to the America we hope to be.
