Sublime, no oranges, 

swimsuit, arm bands, 

bag o meat, neat, breaths,

gulps, nostril tickles, 

salt on tongue, 

to swim in a  body of tears, 

among fish of jelly, stinging, 

ling ring, 

looking for cures among the earth

Mr Freeze, doc leaves

Martina is an Irish artist who works with photography, video, sound, sculpture, drawing and text to explore the experience of being in the world though material play. Bouncing between physical and virtual, real and imagined spaces. In the search for the intervalic, the glitch, the ephemeral and the poetic in a state of becoming. Materialising the immaterial and weaving in and out of memory as the past and the future brush shoulders and wink at each other.  

There is a constant reference to the body through materiality - found and personal objects are cast in glass, bronze, paper, rubber, cement, carbon, in a transformative act that renders strong objects fragile and fragile objects indestructible. 

She is currently undertaking a masters in Fine Art at City and Guilds of London..2021
