    Exhibition Statement:

    CREAM is working with symbolic color, typically attributed to the status of “flesh.” Specifically, wherein corporeal traits are given to untreated, untextured, flat hues of beige. The designation of this exhibition to CREAM, simultaneously evokes ideas on hierarchy and whiteness (of one sort or another). Highlighting the instrumentalization of beige as a color that both represents banality and invokes particular bodies, the artist aims to interrogate the implicit racialization off-white hues invariably undergo.

    For Encarnación: Address is Approximate

    For Encarnación: Address is Approximate, 2014

    Artist Statement:

    For Encarnación is an exploration of home and its representation through the impersonal mediation of google maps and time sensitive data. Ostensibly, this piece operates as the artist’s representation of his own relationship with his grandmother, Encarnación. Presenting as distant and emotionally vague, the artist explores the certain sense of longing that only family can experience when witnessing images of familiar locales.

    For the artist the idea of home reminds Martinez of his grandparent’s house. Google maps hasn’t updated the images of this neighborhood since March 2011. The artist’s grandmother is still alive on the internet.
