Opening Reception: Saturday, February 25, 2017 7-10pm
Art.Science.Gallery. is proud to feature a retrospective solo exhibition by science folk artist DAVID B. MARTINEZ (Austin, Texas), whose colorful paintings draw equally from rich cultural mythologies as well as the history of science.
A self-taught artist, Martinez’s goal is to create and illustrate a new mythology drawn from modern and ancient sources. He is equally inspired by physicists (such as Einstein, Bohr, and Feynman) as he is goddesses (including Nut, Innana, and La Virgin de Guadalupe). Martinez’s vibrant paintings symbolize the most important theories in physics to emerge in recent centuries. The work is steeped in a folk-art aesthetic that is deeply layered with meaning, resulting in brilliant and visually complex retellings of the major scientific discoveries and controversies of our time.
Gallery hours after the opening reception are Tuesday and Thursday 1pm-6pm and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 10am-5pm. A closing reception for Martinez will be held on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 5-8pm and the date and time of an artist talk is TBA. Details for all events are published on the gallery’s event page at www.artsciencegallery.eventbrite.com
