UNTITLED-Self Portrait-Artist Laying on Red Pillow and Bed
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.
A nude self portrait. A woman (the artist) lays in a garden, comfortably exhibiting her sexuality. Playfully, an enormous metal butterfly rests on her forearm. She dangles a huge metal pear with windows on it. Ideas, maybe? And the steel flower? Hmmm? Perhaps it symbolizes a strong woman. A gorgeous millipede, with gold dust on its thousand feet and gold dots on his long body, playfully sits on her arm. And she holds bright flowers that go upwards towards the heavens. And she wears gold around her neck.
We see bright, vibrant colors, playfulness paired with a little bit of sexuality.
