GESTURE AND REFLECTION IN ROBERTO MARTIN
Robert Martin is a painter of sorts plastics and balances color. Everyone
of his paintings is a unit in which the central motif are placing harmonically
the different elements that form it. There is a point axial and different spaces enhancers.
So it seems a simple painting, but both approaches and in developing,
we can discover much more complex aspects.
Matter and planes
You can find scattered symbolic connotations, in any case, are not
determinants, but a pretext to discuss the issues and place them properly in space. And there
is where he conducts his strokes, dense or mild, symphonically always agreed, either
pale gray, blue, sienna. The main concern is for the color and the color cast
ranges in subtle fillings. The rich texture is used, the material distributed by the
needs of the plane, the proximity or remoteness of the tones.
We are facing a painting that sometimes rises above the lightness while others
settle in contrasting emotions. Robert Martin made fruitful field, considered to
basic sense when spread on the web. Hidden secrets of matter. It's a mystery
in itself and should be treated as such, in their inordinate challenge of darkness.
Robert Martin knows this elusive condition of the subject and analyzes revealing the
secrets that run through it. In this respect, one can speak of an assimilation of techniques and
intelligent treatment of the subject.
The purpose and spirit
Robert Martin's work includes intimate environments in which it is the drama, tenderness,
despair and hope, love and heartbreak. Their experiences are full and open, since
this type of painting can only be done from the 1st sensitivity. For Robert Martin has the
nattraleza, but at the same height as it almost always overtaking it, there are the states
mood, ie, the expressive range of all the circumstances that excite and
situations that drag.
To fully understand them is forced to play a full part in each box. Does not
transcripts or pictures of reality. His brush moves motivated by impulses, however,
this repertoire of forces, in principle difficult to control, is contained by the reflections
However, the drive and reflection eventually agree on Robert Martin. Mix
and exchange the spirit and object, the creative mind and nature. Purpose and nature
can serve as a reference to the spiritual charge of the painter, but also the visible matter is born
in the imagination. The end result is the demonstration on the unit.
Robert Martin knows how to build a picture based on that unit, since it is she who
the end justifies the stresses of creation. So each frame moves to his loneliness, his memory,
situations experienced in pain or in love.
Painting as a way of life
It is easy to deduce from this that the work of Robert Martin is growing in intimate pulls
need for personal fulfillment. It is the scene of his feelings
romantic, though I can not speak strictly autobiographical painting. His pictures do not tell
nor have any history. If anything tell the story inside. It is a mind
accurate dive artist shapes the unconscious, find the other side, or the various
faces of reality. To achieve this goal, Pt. And he paints as a way of life and
No wonder that in these poetic works are fundamental levels, rather subjective
or objectives; do their job integrating each other.
Robert Martin's painting is a metaphor of the images located in a wide
concept of creative space, a quiet room full of lights. He has technical expertise and
imagination, order, color depth, balanced volumes. To highlight the job very
set of materials, both when the combines to empower them as when they seek
significance. A painting, in short, soft and yet exciting.
