Martha Jimenez

With a universal language, my work has conquered dissimilar sensibilities. In it you will find the echoes of Rubens, Botticelli, Miguel Angel, Chagall, Modigliani, and Frida Khalo, but you will notice that I recreate my own imagery, sometimes surreal and sometimes related to the "real maravilloso". I am interested in the social and anthropological vision of the themes that I work, I seek to express myself through the poles or duality; I consider that human nature is contradictory. I offer a speech based on concepts such as insularity, movement, versatility, balance, challenge, idiosyncrasy, intimacy and lyricism. In my sculptures, volume treatment is one of my greatest enjoyments due to the playful contrast of lights and shadows. Modeling in clay is my pure act of faith in creation, I give life and forms with my hands. Then I decide if I settle there or take it to bronze. I love engraving because of the high level of experimentation and the possibility of working with textures. My painting is essentially free and spontaneous with movement to achieve it. I use a wavy line, unfinished and loose; I do not like to paint restricted by academic canons that enclose me. Rather, I prefer to move instinctively and freely by all means and use the technique that best suits me in my particular state at all times.

Con un lenguaje universal mi obra ha conquistado disímiles sensibilidades, en ella encontrarán los ecos de Rubens, Botticelli, Miguel Angel, Chagall, Modigliani, Frida Khalo, aunque advertirán que recreo mi propio imaginario y estilo surreal, simbólico y de lo “real maravilloso”. Me interesa la visión social y antropológica de los temas que trabajo, busco expresarme a través de los polos o de la dualidad; considero que así de contradictoria es la naturaleza humana. Ofrezco un discurso sustentado en conceptos como la insularidad, el movimiento, la versatilidad, el equilibrio, el reto, la idiosincrasia, el intimismo y la lírica.
En mis esculturas, el tratamiento del volumen es uno de mis mayores disfrutes por el contraste lúdico de luces y sombras. El modelado en barro es mi acto puro de fe en la creación, doy vida y formas con mis manos. Luego decido si me conformo ahí o lo llevo a bronce.
El grabado me encanta por el alto nivel de experimentación y por la posibilidad de trabajar con las texturas.
Mi pintura es esencialmente libre y espontánea con movimiento propio, para lograrlo uso la línea ondulada, inacabada y suelta. No me gusta pintar restringida por cánones académicos que me encierren, más bien prefiero moverme instintiva y libremente por todos los medios y emplear el que mejor me resulte con mi discurso particular de cada momento.
