aaaah this series of pools by US based artist Kristen Martincic is so cool – no pun intended. Kristen has been exploring the connection between the body and water in her recent work. be sure to check out her series of paper bathing suits as well.
I am fascinated with environments associated with water such as pools, lakes and shower stalls. I am interested in how we relate to each of these various spaces as well as to the various levels of privacy they entail. I have been working with traditional print media and a hybrid of print, drawing and painting on panel to investigate this. These mixed media works bend water, ladders, diving boards around the panel’s side, moving two-dimensional image to object. They simplify and compress space and invite the viewer to reconsider what lies beneath the surface of the familiar.
