By cooking images in a matte medium to flatten and apply to the surface, Marta's transfers allow her to create a new "skin" and patterns on this painting. The tablespread-like composition consists of objects that she either had for a long time or has scavenged from the street, between personal memorabilia like the Dolly Parton CD and hat with scanned images and pages. That way, it presents an interesting dichotomy between the precious and not precious, she says.
Born in Moscow, ID / Works in Brooklyn, NY
You don't necessarily have to venture outside to talk to the world. In her mixed-media works, Marta spreads out an array of personal items, household objects, and memorabilia in front of you like a box of curiosities - each flattened like pieces of color paper. As of now, Marta is playing with the idea of incorporating zippers and maquettes.
