  • About the work

Sculpture made of sewn fabrics, one piece.

Care for the self and the other is the theme of the series entitled Abbracci (Hugs), consisting of sculptures made from soft fabrics and seams that accentuate the tenderness of the subject.
In Florencia Martinez's sculptures, hugs, which are not allowed by the social distancing due to the health emergency, become icons with a sacred connotation, accentuated by the elongated forms, in which spirituality is connected to the emotional dimension. Slender and intense, the sculptures express a beauty that is at once passionate and fragile. The intensity of the embrace is united with a vertical energy that, as in a shrub, soars from its roots towards the sky and freedom.


About the Artists

1962 Buenos Aires, Argentina

Even materials are judged according to class, caste or purity. A poor thread that joins and patches is never looked at seriously just as a woman artist is never treated as seriously as a male artist.

But, with the conviction of the base soldier, the dawn baker, the fisherman and the cat, Florencia Martinez goes on undaunted, like pollen amidst a thousand allergies.
