ABOUT EUGENIA MARTINEZ
Eugenia works with found photography, specifically vintage images from 18th century layered with hand painted words. The texts themselves consist of literal or distorted quotes from politicians, moral leaders and slang words from song lyrics – all brought together to represent a collective and often contradictory point of view that addresses issues of power structures past and present.
Martinez exhibits her work internationally, recent exhibitions include “Totem”, Galería de Arte Mexicano (GAM), D.F. Mexico,” El que tenga ojos que vea”, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Matamoros, Tamaulipas 2014) I don’t have a dream, Ramis Barquet (New York, 2013).
