Abstraction, passion, beauty
For The Herald
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.
