Mónica Aíssa Martínez
My artwork arises from a process in which I try to express my understanding about life energy, the growth process, transformation, transcendence, and the innate ability in humans to create. I believe my art is a reflection of myself as a female, as a human being, and ultimately as the creative spirit that I am. Much of my imagery is based upon the vessel in its role as a container, which I believe is a metaphor for the human body, and the mind. My work stresses movement and action taking place within the vessel and then flowing out and evolving. Similar to the life force flowing into and out of the body—thoughts flowing into and out of the mind and eventually forming and creating.
