Artist, Nancy Martini

Artist Nancy Martini lives and works in Miami, Florida. Her works spans many years and many mediums from sculpture, painting, encaustic, textiles, photography & video, fused glass, papier-mâché, to new media art.

Artist Statement: 

The pandemic has forced a period of solitude, so I decided to pick up my camera and walk in my city. This simple activity has provided solace, discovery, and inspiration during this time of confinement.. I have found quiescence among the bustle -- spaces full of color and light that allow nature to find her place among the structures. The collection of images I am creating is called Quietly Urban.

The Quietly Urban collection is an example of New Media Art, which uses technology to create imagery, typically starting with photographs that are digitally drawn over and manipulated. This technique allows me to create affordable art that can be used in a variety of ways - the first being offered as notebooks and journals.

Food Forest Exhibition by Nancy Martini brings awareness to growing food in urban areas. Each sculpture uses grocery bag material to represent our relationship with food questioning our relationship with food, how we acquire it, and how we could make healthy food more accessible to the community by growing it in public spaces.

"The Biscayne Bay Collection" Porcelain bowls by Nancy Martini are delicately thin with native plants and flowers carved into the bowls to promote the importance of planting natives in our home and urban gardens.  The porcelain glazing technique is destressed to mirror the state of the bay and how much it needs our care. The collection subtly brings awareness to necessity of clean water that is vital to our health and the health of our community.
