Artist’s Statement & Bio:

Through my work I explore the idea of the reservoir as a repository for matter. With the sink as a metaphor we can think of its form as a container for collected energies that are in varying states of release over time. My works are resonant bodies recording the moment of impact. They absorb instances of directional force and reverberate the dual nature of experience. Caught in cycles and outside of them simultaneously, they are fast and slow, touched and untouched as they retain and let go.

Martina is a multi media artist who has been highly impacted by a life of travel, adaptation, and curiosity. Her current practice is an exploration of longing and displacement. She will be graduating from ACAD in 2018, and has been nominated for BMO 1st Art! Prize and the ACADBoard of Governors Graduating Student Award.
