Once again at the Solo Program of SP-Arte, Portas Vilaseca Galeria, this year, presents the poetic discourse of Carolina Martinez, with unseen artworks comprising paintings on wood, assemblages, collages and an intriguing site-specific; dealing with architecture and minimalism.
During her creative process, Carolina Martinez investigates architectural spaces and urban surfaces. In her artistic production, she focuses the spectators’ look towards empty, apparently uninhabited spaces; in this way, she reveals invisible perspectives. At SP-Arte, a series of works created as of 2014 is on display, also including new pieces made in tribute to São Paulo, synthesizing her research. With this, she invites the audience to appreciate her young trajectory, composed by a unique body of work, both encompassing and consistent. Giving continuity to the investigation of In Search of Nothingness – fruit of her experience at Residency Unlimited, in New York –, this exhibition includes a site-specific installation; paintings on wood or paper, leading to assemblages; as well as collages on photographs. The installation consists of extensions of architectural elements, creating a free and sinuous path that expands through the booth. The paintings present synthetic images that question the emptiness, space, and time passing in a subtle and poetic manner, by means of volumetries, openings, plays of light and shade. The collages created by Carolina reveal her photographic eye and the presence of elements to interfere over unnoticed settings in the city.
