Artist: M. Solorzano
I Only Ask Of God
Influenced by Picasso’s period of cubism, and surrealism and De Kooning’s abstract expressionism, Martha paints biomorphic shapes. Martha is great at ambiguously blending figure and ground in her pictures while dismembering, re-assembling and distorting her figures in the process.
I Only Ask Of God, is painting inspired by a song by León Gieco. In a nutshell, the song asks of God, that in times of War and Suffering, and Pain, to not let death come and find him/her indiferent to those, and to not have done enough to help. The artist here paints War like a monster who stomps hard, Death approching, Innocence fading, and people killing each other.
