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

                                                 ***************************************************************       Martina is an Irish artist who works with; photography, video, sound, sculpture, collage, 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. 
The work weaves in and out of memory as the past and the future brush shoulders. 
Found and personal objects are cast in variety of materials, such as; glass and bronze, in a transformative act that renders; strong objects fragile and fragile objects, indestructible.
 Each object is a reaction or a rejection to the previous one. It's a cumulative process, and there is a resonance of all the things from this chain reaction. The combination of intuitive and conceptual strategies merge into an idiosyncratic and subtle vocabulary. 

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