PROVENANCE
Private Collection, Singapore.

Appearing at Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers for the first time is contemporary artist Pow Martinez from Manila. On offer here is an abstract piece illustrating a portrait in polychromatic palette. Extensively drawing from the tradition of grotesque, pop imagery and genre music, Martinez offers eclectic and humorous take on Filipino history, culture, art scene and market as well as phenomena like Pinoy pop culture.

An interdisciplinary artist, Pow Martinez studied Painting at the Kalayaan College (2004 - 2006) and Visual Communication at the University of the Philippines (2002 - 2004), holding degrees in both subjects. His practice ranges from traditional media such as painting to sound and sculptural installations. Martinez\\’\\’\\’\\’s works have been exhibited in the Philippines and internationally (in Germany, France, Thailand, United States and others). Being one of the most promising and prolific young artists in the Philippines, he has received the prestigious Ataneo Art Award in 2010. He has held over 15 solo exhibitions since 2007.

Catalogue Note

Pow Martinez\’\’s New World evokes the excitement of discovery. A motley band of adventurers sailing across a harsh but strangely compelling sea, the painting captures the hope and anticipation that keeps every living being in pursuit of something, be it for food or shelter, fame or freedom, the spiritual or material.

Martinez is known for his fearless use of texture, applying layer upon layer of paint on canvas, imbuing the image with an extra sense of tangibility. His bold use of color and offbeat imagery speaks of a tongue-in-cheek sensibility that is playful, but not without yearning. His art inspires even as it disarms the viewer, its candidness a refreshing and updated take on humanity\’\’s most perennial of desires.

The artist has mentioned that his work is a reflection of a combination of what his reality is, and what he thinks reality should be. New World depicts, in hyperreality, a favourite subject of the old masters: the journey. In it, an ark is crammed to overflowing with larger-than-life characters, all of them different, yet all of them focused on one goal, which lies beyond the canvas. They wear different facial expressions, their hues varied but bright, expectant, anticipatory. Behind them, a monochrome sky is slowly coloured by drops of water. Gentle rain has often been considered a sign of blessing and of good things to come. And so it seems here, as the intrepid sailors wait with baited breath for their ship, a material manifestation of their yet-to-be-met desires, to touch the shores of the promised land, where all they are free to make their dreams come true.
