Wendell Martinez

Page 1


In his paintings and drawings, Martinez captures the alienation of city life. Anger, loneliness, desire, rage, frustration haunt barren cityscapes in the form of totemic signs and symbols drawn from his urban environment. His images--drawn and painted with a skill rarely seen in contemporary art--are graffiti gang tags, ragged flaming Sacred Hearts, machine gun-toting fashionistas, demonic robot rabbits--the stuff of dead-end streets, abandoned warehouses, Botanicas, old comic books and magazines, faded tattoos and scarred skateboards. They are like a frame of double-exposed movie film, moments of absolute stillness and quiet, the city and its swirling chaos frozen for a moment, absolutely quiet, like the quiet of a coming storm. -Susanne Reece
