  • About the Artist

Born in Chile, a land of earthquakes, literally and figuratively, Gala Martinoia travels, in 1973, to France, then to Spain.

In 1981, the artist returns to Paris where she takes roots.

"Here, I am a painter and video artist, a woman who looks at this world, our world, wild, diverse, cosmopolitan, dazzling, hard.

Who are we? Us, me, the others. The others me".

Vertigo of the nights, memory of the body impregnate my paintings.

Her last canvases, large, without frame, painted low to the ground, hold her to the earth that welcomes her, allow her a freedom of gesture, a furious lightness, the one that the artist finds in her drawings, the one that Gala Martinoia would not want to lose.

Traces of these years, of this century born of uncertainties, where the word is silent, veiled by numbers and screens.

The painting, faithful companion, opens cracks, interstices where the imagination penetrates.

Palimpsest of days, it speaks a language of ochres and reds, signs of time, landscape of feelings.
