Cuna de Lobos
Martinez’s series of TV paintings focus on his interest in reality. In these works his aim is to deconstruct original narratives and create new dynamics both between and within the stills. Stylistically he tends to work in a photo-realistic nature because of its associations with truth in imagery. But his focus is more in creating a rift between suggestion and truth, and to also question emotions and experience.
For this exhibition, Martinez has produced a small series from images taken from Cuna de Lobos, a Mexican telenovela which aired on SBS in the mid 90’s and which he addictively watched with his family as a teenager.
