Martin Reyna, Argentinean artist, works with conventional media: water colors and oils with an all new methodology.
Martín Reyna’s recent works expand and meld his ongoing exploration of landscape, architecture, the void of nothingness and light. Reyna’s paintings in their utmost, celebrate the accident as a thing that can be masterfully controlled. With the use of minimal gestures, his paintings provoke a poetic blurring of the distinction between recognizability, the purely abstract and the place where the two meet in a dreamlike state.
In both his heavily textured oils on canvas and his intricately woven watercolors, a most vivid use of color plays a vital role in the representation of metaphorical analogies of existence and creation. With the use of familiar yet camouflaged imagery such as trees, geometric shapes and spatial perspectives, the works pave a way into a space where landscape meets an abstracted tapestry that weaves together the most miniscule of components to make up the whole.
Reyna has exhibited throughout Europe and the USA and is present in several private, corporate and museum collections (e.g.: MAC, Lima, Peru and MACRO, Rosario, Argentina).
