Undercurrents: The Oklahoma Sage
Born and raised in rural Oklahoma, Martin's work explores "old wives' tales," homeopathic remedies, and farmer's decisions based on natural events. Martin's research of the female archetypes and how characteristics of each phase parallel natural occurrence and region, as well as cultural superstition, fuel her work. Simultaneously, she looks inward as to how this information has been absorbed and reflected in her life. If one has had the privilege to be raised under the care of their grandmother, they may be unaware of the amount of information intertwined within them. This exhibition is a celebration of female lineage and provides female elders the recognition they deserve.
This exhibition is composed of sculptural and digital works. Download and listen to Martin's audio piece, "Pulse" below:
