Abstraction, passion, beauty

By Alfredo Cernadas
For The Herald
Flavia Martini is a beautiful young woman whose life is related by and involved with beauty. Her activity at first began in a passive manner , as a model and then, as a designer. Especially on the runways, where her beauty and elegance helped dazzle as much as the clothes she wore and designed. But her spirit demanded something more personal for her creative instincts to bloom in, a more assertive way than wearing and designing clothes. So it was no surprise when she decided to make her dormant creativity open up and she veered toward painting , thus finding the right path.

She turned toward Juan Astica’s studio and took painting lessons with the master, to which she also added a new penchant for sculpture, the main subject of which is energetic bronze horses, as happens to so many Argentine artists. Many of whom also happen to be women, although Martini shares her time between beautiful, vital bronze steeds and equally vital abstract paintings, now seen in the Fiat art space.

What first strikes one is the energy and happiness of her colourful, abstract world, as well as its exciting vitality, its rhythms. Colour and fantasy explode and flow like torrents in several different manifestations, with exhilarating, intoxicating combinations, which does not exclude more lyrical moments.

The contrasts exude from lyrical to explosive, scampering playfully all over the canvas, with delicately chosen hues that at times run head on into vigorously applied shadows.
