Martine’s work is process oriented. Starting with gesture, shapes and patches of colors she creates an abstract world reflecting a mood and an atmospheric quality. "Abondance" is a monotype on paper mounted on panel. A whirl of different shapes and colors is floating in the foreground. The light and dark contrast in the middle ground suggests a horizon with a strange sunset or sunrise. The artist was born in Paris and earned her BFA at SF Art Institute and her MFA, in painting at SF State University.
