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.
