  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 03, 2013 - "Creations must flow forth from the soul as pure spring water flows from its source," states Anita Martina, a painter whose intense emotions and subtle sensations animate and enrich every artwork. Working in oil on canvas and ink and watercolor on rice paper, Martina's works are at once fragile, emotive, intuitive and rhythmic. Interested in the familiar forms of crevices, peaks, natural land erosion and majestic landscapes, her semi-abstracted works offer an expressive and rich language drawing from the plasticity of emotions and the bold, restorative, organic lines of the earth. Striving to reach nature in its bare essence, her paintings crystallize abstract currents and the blissful awareness of growth. Influenced by the Edenic island terrain of the Netherlands Antilles where she was raised, her works often translate the passage of seasons in their sweeping intensity and fluid harmony.

    Dutch national Anita Martina was born to a Dutch father and Colombian mother. Raised on the island of Curacao, Netherlands Antilles, she currently resides in both Santiago de Chile and Patagonia Argentina.
