About

America Martin Untitled Native - (Bold Lines, Black and White Portrait Painting) Oil & Acrylic on Paper - (black contemporary frame) 61.50 x 48.50 in THE WILD BUNCH There are few subjects in American history that can ignite the imagination as much as the mystery, romance and mythology associated with the American Frontier. The theme of the Wild West has long been popular in American art, film, and literature. Often, the visual imagery is heavily tied in with the folklore that has been created around the Wild West and Native American tradition. LA-based artist America Martin draws inspiration from her Colombian heritage, the natural world, as well as the landscape of Southern California. Her work frequently features the human figure shown in relationship to nature, with animals and plants used analogously to traits of personality. Martin works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, yet her unique use of line and portrayal of form is notable across medium. Luscious, generous strokes of the brush, thick layers of paint and a bold use of line are signatures of her work, with much attention paid to composition. Martin often treats the figure and background with equal importance. In her recent body of work, she returns to the subject of Native American portraits, mixing indigenous motifs with her signature style and featuring depictions of the human form as solid, grounded, and in tune with its environment and spirit Tags: figurative art, gestural abstraction, cultural commentary, portrait, Native American, dark colors, Pop Western
