Anna Marisa Martinez

Anna Martinez focuses her attention on commodification and the mass consumption of objects. Her installations—or, late capitalist still lifes—are a palimpsest of the visual merchandising strategies embedded in retail displays. Engaging the histories of design, fashion, photography, and architecture, Martinez’s collages, sculptures, and installations are constructed through careful consideration of viewership, which is to say, consumership.

Anna Marisa Martinez graduated with a BFA in painting from the Herron School of Art and Design in 2013. She currently works as a Visual Merchandising Manager, set and wardrobe stylist, and fashion display designer. She maintains a private studio practice in Jersey City, NJ.

Avant-Bland 2018

The first solo exhibition from Anna Martinez, Avant-bland showcases new paintings and small sculptures by the artist. Hosted by Cat Head Press: Printshop and Artist Coop, the exhibition ran for the month of September 2018.

In Avant-bland, artist Anna Martinez creates muted paintings that reference or exist more as minimalist sculptures than they do as paintings with their bold form and assertiveness. Martinez renders popular painting tropes such as still lives and landscapes into abstract lines and shapes to further examine the history of painting.
