We are lucky enough to announce Rowena Martinich as the latest artist to join the Red T Multiples family. We have 5 works by this youthful, energetic artist and infinite possibilities of where they can take us.
Rowena is from Melbourne, Australia and has a long and impressive CV of exhibitions, public and private art project, grants, awards and residencies. We have most recently worked with Rowena on our EAST Hong Kong hotel renovation, creating the art for all 336 rooms from just one of her impressive original works. Rowena is not only a consummate professional, she is a true creative and we’re excited to be able to offer her works through Red T Multiples.
Rowena’s artist statement gives us more insight into where her work comes from and her creative process:
In the studio Martinich is driven by process. Her paintings are constantly shifting and evolving, building on each other to reflect a particular interest in the technical capacity of paint, each new body of work displaying a curiosity in the application of fluid layers. Informed by years of painting, Martinich works intuitively to create seemingly spontaneous and playful yet balanced compositions; rich in luminous colour and gesture.
Often, Martinich’s works are found in unexpected places; stairwells, train stations, building façades…out of the grey mundanity of the urban landscape, colour leaps from the walls; ‘I love that saturating the retinas of my audience can momentarily distract them enough that they can have a dose of pure joy, where they are immersed in the energy that my artwork is imbued with, where the physicality of its creation is visually depicted through giant sweeping brushstrokes and liquescent expression.”
