Ode to the DRAWING
Martina Vanda is a visual artist working mainly with Drawing.
Drawing allows her to create at the same speed of thought and hand in hand with the emotions.
She works with an experimental approach to the materials to capture the balance between thoughts and gestures.
She works intuitively and spontaneously and chooses Drawing for its qualities of immediacy, intimacy, informality, motion and its alliance with storytelling.
Although her practice covers drawings, writing, painting, collage, ceramic sculpture, artist books and picture books, the entire search can be seen as a form of drawing; a generating tool for traditional and experimental ends.
Her work exude her interest for the life's journey and the human condition, with strong references to literature and theatre as well as personal experiences.
