Lena's Artistic Biography

Austin based artist Lena Martin's colorful drawings, paintings and murals depict figures nestled inside abstract, ethereal environments. Navigating through menacing triangles, soft silken swirls and glowing orbs, the people and animals enchant the viewer with their various vulnerable moments. The theme of sleep, or trying to wake up from a material state is paramount. Animals (especially dogs, owls and foxes) populate the worlds her brushes create as a nod to nature and our place in it. Trained in medical illustration, her paintings also contain gooey internal organs and dried-out bones whose gruesome appearance juxtapose the soft feminine forms. Enchanting and weird, Martin's work confronts the viewer on a deep emotional level.
