Monterrey, Nuevo León, 1976.
Artist whose work consists mainly of Mexican portraits from the colonial era to the 1960s, enhanced with metaphorical texts. Through images, Martínez reflects the social division between the public discourse of the different Mexican social groups and their true thoughts. Selected parts of the paintings and photographs are repetitively and obsessively surrounded by sentences, creating an impenetrable halo of prejudice. The texts, in both English and Spanish, consist of literal or distorted quotes from politicians and moral leaders that become contradictory to the images.
