More to come.
Guilherme Martinez received his BFA in Fine Art from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in 2009. His studies primarily focused on conceptual work, and his most notable work addresses the constraints of two-dimensional painting by breaking the boundaries into the third dimension. His seemingly warped, abstract frames are draped with stretched canvas that folds, wrinkles, and protrudes from the frame, forcing the viewer to question traditional norms of painting and fine art. The amorphic works have a unique demanding aesthetic presence that draws in the viewer to confront the conceptual issues that he has presented.
