Argentine Art Collection Talent and Creativity. Written by Ana Piasek, 2016
EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES

Angely Martinez´s work shown here is a beautiful and lively account of the Americas´ history. The vibrant palette includes the colors of many national flags.  The gifted artist seems to be paying homage to such fertile lands, exposed to so many changes brought about by flows of migrants tha swept away almost everything in their path.  Thanks to her well-known creativity as well as her attentive and sensible social involvement, Angely Martinez emphsizes the symbolic power of people accompanied by local alchemy and imagery touches.  She avoids the paradox of the vast garde and packs the characters with a Cubism tone, alluding perhaps to the community spirit of a demonstration, thus presinting a vlever vision of the world.  The idea is to follow the path designated by her skills, daring to prove her wisdom.  In this surrealistic landscape the protagonists crowd together as expressive biomorphic structures and create an abstract picture.

“An current view of Argentine Art”. Written by Luciana García Belbey, 2015.
Ediciones Institucionales

Angely Martinez´s characters reveal geometric features reminiscent of cubist languages, yet they have a significant dramatic expression.  The interesting composition shown here depicts several performers from a tango orchestra quite similar to Emilio Pettoruti´s musicians and harlequins. The structure follows force lines and its organization creates connections and tensions.  As result or her acute perception of today realities, Angely Martinez always relates her scenes to certain social settings.  Each picture is a story; the first step is a draft, a kind of script designed to plan the scene, followed by a drawing to be painted.  Her works are like a puzzle because the gifted artist tries to convey the ambiguity and dichotomy of our times.  While attending Natalio Galluzzi workshops Angely Martinez discovered new aesthetic approaches and developed her unique style.

“By the roads of Argentine Art”. Written by Daniel Pérez, 2014.
EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES

Title: The three.
Technique: Mixed. 
Size: 20 x 25 cm.

As we travel along the road of life the world´s turmoil becomes an ever increasing chaos of tragedies and distant events, encounters and losses, faces loved and forgotten, painful experiences, unforgettable moments and voices that continue to resonate in our collective memory. As an inspired navigator in the endless sources of things that define our sense of humanity. Angely Martinez develops a kind of painting built with clear cut resources, open to many different possibilities and emotions of human tragicomedy.  If the watching and enigmatic eyes of three women can express the unspeakable existential drama, the wild guess designed to establish an identity or a precise link between them becomes unnecessary.  We only know that “The Three” have always lived and suffered like us and also that being in the world may lead to an unsettling change of roles; thus Angely Martinez´s sharp work turns to be the one that not only looks at us but also challenges us.

Title: Seeding the way.
Technique: Oil. 
Size: 100 x 100 cm. 


According to Thomas de Quincey, solitude is essential to man, since all men come into this world alone and leave it alone, yet the pessimism that may result from that assertion finds a powerful balance in the compulsive need to find a partner, to raise a family or to be a member of a community. Resorting to attractive, lively reds and oranges, Angely Martinez pays homage to such meetings by means of a well-organized composition, related to Cubism constructive features but conceived as luxurious social celebration. Committed to the senses in full swing, a group of characters wearing flashy clothes an holding assorted musical instruments is “Paving the Way” to brotherhood amid a festive atmosphere of songs and drinks. Besides the utterly flawless composition, Angely Martinez´s picture is remarkable for its humanistic contents, characteristic of an artist who has something to say and has devoted many years of hard work to learn how to convey it.


 

“Outstanding exponents of Argentine Art”. Written by Rosa Faccaro, 2012.
EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES
Title: América.
Technique: Bronze sculpture. 
Size: 50 x 24 cm.   


ANGELY MARTINEZ studied with renowned masters and Developer an interesting aesthetic language characterized by an unusual sensibility easily perceived in her sculptures and paintings. Her works in both fields belong to de Post-Cubism movement. The gifted artist creates human figures using geometric shapes that not only approach formal features but also a particularly dramatic expression related to Expressionism.  Angely Martinez has been deservedly praised since her series are not heterogeneous but devoted without distinction, the latter always reveal an extreme solitude. Angely Martinez frequently deals with different topics designed to tel a story, as seen in an appealing sequence of experiences focused on people and their environment. 

“Chosen of Argentine Art”. Written by Ana Piasek, 2011.
EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES
Title: For work, for dignity.
Technique: Mixed.   
Size: 100 x 100 cm.


Angely Martinez’s “For Work, for Dignity” reveals a juxtaposed, baroque-like crowd that expresses an unconventional relat onship between elemnts. People, dogs, bones, a newspaper and saucepans pile up and leave no place for anything else.  The contorted characters, surrounded by a sense of claustrophobia and marginalization, seem to be waiting to be portrayed.  Their looks and body language conceal a mix or anger and pain.  The skin subtly blends with de ochre background, emulating the energy exchange between humankind and land, a fact that helps explain why agricultural production cannot be submitted to economic laws only.  The chromatic range, including reds amid the Argentine flag’s blues and whites, stick to the powerful, magnetic and stage faces .  Angely Martinez’s characteristic style combines with a remarkable reflection ability to convey a social message.  Her paintings demonstrate the artist’s respect for peasants and their work, as well as her contempt for the injustices to which they were subjected for so many years. However, the gifted artist always keeps the esthetic beauty translated into a unique language.

Title: What everyone waits.
Technique: Oil.
Size: 40 x 40 cm.   


Angely Martinez’s austere faces beset by melancholy and uncertainty, attempting to flee the frontiers set by society and the unrelenting networks of mistakes and misery, invite spectators to reflection and observation. Shapes and colors play a crucial role in this sophisticated and interesting painting that seems to another chapter in a long aesthetic story. Squares and a black and white interplay create a particular atmosphere around characters despondently looking at their own gloomy circumstances. The sad look in their eyes, an almost translucent blend of light and shadows, adds drama to the scene.

The remarkable picture shown here conveys a psychological connotation open to all possible events experienced by the protagonists depicted here.  A single word in capital letters asks for justice.  Such is our own inner struggle and the most important issue is to persevere and work until peace can be achieved.  Reading may vary, but all of then represent a legitimate and feasible artistic manifesto.

Title: Mexican serenade.
Technique: Mixed. 
Size: 60 x 50 cm.  
 
Definitely rhythmic and vibrant, delicately modulated shapes sagaciously  cover the canvas to forge a poetic interpretation of aesthetic expressions translated into an utterly personal, unforgettable creative language.  The lively characters seem to chat, meet and blend into a credible fantasy.

Angely Martinez painted the work shown here after a trip to Mexico, presumably inspired by Manuel Ponce´s celebrated “Mexican Serenade” stressing the sensibility of popular displays: “Wake up / My love, my jewel,/ For what / wish my jewel /  Is to keep you awake”.

Angely Martinez beautiful picture also talks about an encounter a touch and unforeseen event, regarded as the main cultural trait by Eduardo Portella. In this sense, when people of different races mix naturally and spontaneously, enlightenment easiy neutralizes exclusion,.

Thus, this interesting painting may express a kind of humanism more significant than the recognition of diversity, …. The existential adventure of being in a community.

Title: Medieval symphony.
Technique: -
Size: -  
 

Angely Martinez´s interesting painting conveys a sensible idea translated into colorful spatial rhythms. “Medieval Symphony II” consists of several characters and musical instruments on a somewhat elaborate background. The face of de main musician, depicted from two different points of view, never attempts to reproduce his true appearance.  The imposing image seems to be alive and the sharp eyes look imperturbable, while the flowers that adorn the costume mimic a sweet melody. 

Fantasy, as music, is something the artist should understand. In this sense, Angely Martinez´s aesthetic gift includes features from Cubism and Surrealism skillfully blended into a scene that not only reveals intelligence, but also a unique personal style. 

“The Golden book of Argentine Art”. Written by Daniel Pérez, 2007.
EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES
Títle: Images of harbour.
Technique: Acrylic. 
Size: 80 x 70 cm.  


Clearly related to Post-Modernism, Angely Martinez´s works depict complex structures that acting as a rational mirror reflect a convoluted world in which all things are subdivided or turned into insurmountable problems and slowly drift toward and uncertain present, often devoid of true values and meanings.  On the foggy background we perceive a river and some ships that seem to suggest a known order, yet the bridge and assorted metal pieces on the foreground convey the gloomy image of a realm apparently detached from the desired essential configurations. Amid the menacing collection of machines and tools, however, we find a familiar human figure playing with a paper boat like the one we sail in our dreams to pursue an ever elusive destiny.

Title: The reunion.
Technique: Acrylic.
Size: 120 x 100 cm. 

 

Duplicated or multiple faces, perspectives from which American ideas conform to established patterns, images redeemed by addition rather than subtraction-as envisioned by Simón Bolivar for his homeland- are the features that characterize Angely Martinez´s works.

The original native reveals a dual attitude regarding the conquest´s subjugation, while masks proliferate and mutual understanding becomes feasible thanks to music, the universal language, represented here by an imposing guitar.

This may be the message conveyed by the ascending and descending volumes; men, women and children engaged in a secret ritual, their visages and hands lighting a candle of hope. Although many artists have misused Cubism, Angely Martinez has made the most of it in a sound composition, well-designed figures, harmonious colors and a milieu that honors our traditions through a reunion rather than a perpetual claim.

Title: Tango Vision.
Technique: Acrylic.     
Medidas: 80 x 60 cm.
 

Tango as a worldwide phenomenon is not  astonishing anymore, but an admirable achievement.

Not surprisingly then, the musicians from this utterly unusual band have rather indigenous features.

Angely Martinez´s work thus corroborates that Buenos Aires is a truly unique city, since it has its own traditional music, the cherished tango (and to a lesser degree the less known milonga).

The painting shown here is rich in lines and colors. Generous curves outlining characters and instruments emulate the rolling and embracing cadence of tango music. The artist has deliberately avoided angled shapes reminiscent of certain tango rhythms, favoring dancing curves instead.

Musical instruments seem also bizarre. A musician appears to be blowing an Indian flute, resented by a double bass fingerboard-not the typical guitar-while another two play  on the same strings, creating an astounding choral effect. This is a truly innovative painting, definitely charming in its language and composition.

Title: I want to dance with you.
Technique: Acrylic.
Sze: 100 x 80 cm.  

 

Angely Martinez, has been deservedly awarded by the Miami´s Museum of Latin American Art (2004). Her work pays homage to Buenos Aires music, a melody that captivates audiences world-wide.

From all the expression possibilities painting offers to depict tango music Angely Martinez always chooses the most demanding approaches. I Wish to Dance with You portrays an orchestra performing tango music.  A musician on the foreground attempts to follow the dancer steps and embraces her with his bandoneon.

Wearing a suit and typical hat, he plays seated on a chair yet tries to come closer to the lady.  This female image is not one and all at the same time.

As Discepolo has pointed out, “Tango is sad feeling we dance with” Yes, painting is passion and tango is poetry.

Angely Martinez uses the whole canvas, interlacting characters and stressing their movements. This is a colorful work on which hues create different milieus, while faceted surfaces give unity and rhythm to composition.

EDICIONES INSTITUCIONALES
Title: Actual world I.
Technique: Acylic.
Size: 100 x 100 cm.      
 

When one examines minutely the Works by this remarkable painter, is easy to conclude that they strikingly depict the disastrous consequences of so many worlwide horrifying events – from the Twin Towers´terrorist attack in New York City to the Chechen bombings against de the Russian-backed government to the endless Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East to the ongoing hostility in Iraq, not to mention the incessant civil wars in many countries, the seemingly impossible to eradicate widespread famine, the murderous guerrilla warfare acting on innocent victims, and other crimes that fill newspapers with unbelievable images of blood, pain, suffering, consternation and misery.

Angely Martinez, however, wishes to go forward in the crusade –she thus attempts to portray her feelings and unequivocally denounces the obvious inequality seen in some social regimes and circumstances. She has chosen this challenge after having devoted herself to other similarly demanding issues and is now engaged in a painting she feels involved with.  Confronted by such human agonies, worsened by the inauspicious course of history, she is eager to express her solidarity, her sorrow and her desire to help through her astounding work.

Title: Perfect saturday.   
Technique: Acrylic.     
Size: 100 x 100 cm. 
 

According to Natalio Galluzzi “Her artistic reality is built with wavy touches and bends that reveal a freedom and ease need, with sharp strainght and motionless lines balancing movement.  Human figures follow different paths, based on a sound knowledge of harmonic composition. Thus, Angely leaves the interpretative and expressive reality core to enter inner conscious arenas and deep affective choices, placing in each scene a creation mystery which is in part the illusory power of her art”
