Melvin Martínez. SILVESTRES | Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, San Juan (P.Rico) | 27.10.2016 – 20.01.2017

After nearly 10 years without exhibiting in Puerto Rico, the painter Melvin Martinez accepted the invitation of the Art Gallery of the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón (USC) to perform a solo show titled SILVESTRE, which opens on Thursday, October 27th at 7:30 pm.
This exhibition presents a variety of two-dimensional pieces of various sizes, in dialogue with monochrome, without neglecting the intensity in handling textures.
“This new series of paintings, made in 2016, are extensions or extracts of the pieces created in 2013 in Mexico City DF, in which I deleted objects, elements and recycled materials integrated in the works, to work directly with the material raw. These fabrics made from polymers are seen as subtle given constructions that are becoming major tissues that intertwine through the chosen textures, some planned, others more organic and wild “(Melvin Martinez).
