Art.Science.Gallery presents David Martinez: "Retrospective" opening reception
Art.Science.Gallery will feature a retrospective solo exhibition by science folk artist David B. Martinez, 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.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 1.
