Domingo Martin, Callado Silencio #5, Oil on Black Velvet

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature a Spanish artist, Domingo Martín, in Degrees of Abstraction. The exhibition is scheduled to run from March 25, 2011 through April 15, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, March 31, 2011).

About the Artist
Roughly luxurious textures meet rich color in Spanish painter and sculptor Domingo Martín's work. Sumptuous biomorphic shapes are juxtaposed with rigorously strict lines, creating a harmony of form that is stunning in its grace. Formally and conceptually akin to the Abstract Expressionists, Martín is sensitive to the emotive power of lavish, curvaceous form and mythic visual languages. Symbolism infuses his work, striking the viewer in its originality and strength. Stories — at once intimate and personal and universal and public — emerge through Martín's beautifully worked compositions. “It is my intention to create work, work that is able to offer… the same as is found in all primitive peoples, the language of the great mythologies of the great traditions, stories,” he says. Devoted in his dedication to truthful aesthetics, this is an artist whose work is admired at home and abroad.

The recipient of the Barcelona First Prize in Sculpture in 2008, Domingo Martín divides his time between Spain and Mexico.
