City of Eternal Springtime

SEE EVENT DETAILS
With a title that is a direct reference to the artist’s hometown of Cuernavaca, Mexico (which brandishes the slogan "land of eternal springtime") Oakland-based artist Jet Martinez makes it clear that we can expect an explosion of brightly-colored blooms in his new solo show consisting of 17 enamel and spray paint pieces ranging in size from 24 x 30” to 48 x 96”.

Continuing as the latest variations on a theme of paintings and murals based on Mexican Folk arts, the floral paintings set to fill the gallery were originally inspired by embroidery, textile and pottery patterns from Central and Southern Mexico. Through three distinct styles of floral work, City of Eternal Springtime is a nod to the simple beauty of nature. Whether through smooth ribbons of color, a thinner maze-like linework or short strokes of paint resembling an embroidery stitch, Martinez’ flowers seem to undulate in a perpetual breeze.
