MARTIN REYNA

Martin Reyna (b.1964) in Buenos Aires lives and works in Paris. He has been the subject of many solo and group exhibitions internationally, including at the Teodora Gallery in Paris, Artemisa Gallery in New York, Knokke-Zoute Gallery in Belgium, amongst others. Reyna has been the recipient of several awards, including the Chandon Prize at ARTEBA in Argentina; Grant of Arts from Antorchas Foundation in Buenos Aires; Jean-Francois Millet Prize for Painting from SIAP in France; Costantini Prize from MNBA Buenos Aires; Nuevo Mundo Foundation Prize; and Gunther Prize for Painting from CAYC in Buenos Aires. 

 

Martin Reyna’s paintings embody and expand upon the artist’s ongoing exploration of landscape, architecture, and light.  His brightly colored inks are spread and diluted through dynamic and careful gestures that create a sense of control and freedom all at once.  Through meticulous drips and pours, Reyna controls the brush strokes to create a convergence of other-worldly space. The vibrant colors shimmer and create a dichotomy of spatial perspective that becomes especially evident through his diptych and polyptych works.
