Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce our sixth solo exhibition of Cuban-American Maria Martinez-Cañas, that will bring together two distinct and temporally disparate bodies of work: vintage photographic prints from the artist’s formative years in the early 1980s and new works on paper. Throughout her career, Martinez-Cañas has experimented with alternative processes and is known for exploring the subjects of identity, body, and nature. Presenting techniques that range from appropriation to photo collage, What Remains, aims to explore the dichotomy of presence and absence of the subject.

Maria Martinez-Cañas: Photo Paintings at Julie Saul Gallery, New York

September 6 – October 20, 2012

“… Fifth solo exhibition featuring Maria Martinez-Cañas, comprised of large-scale, unique works that have been completed in 2011/12. Described as “Photo Paintings”, this body of work stems from an inversion of Sir Francis Bacon’s process, which originated in cinematic formats and photographic sources that were then turned into paintings. Martinez-Cañas takes his paintings as a reverse starting point; each unique work is of mixed media, incorporating image transfer, painting and collage onto wood veneer, measuring either 96 x 96 or 36 x 48 inches. Her new series, as those that have come before it, wrestles with origins, identity, perceptions and ideas of source, translating the inspirations that have empowered and informed her work into physical manifestations.”
