Stop by Paris Frameworks on Amsterdam to see new framed artworks by Colombian-American artist America Martin. For these pieces, purchased at New York’s Affordable Art Fair, we chose a hand-finished frame with a slim profile. The stark contrast between the black frame and white mat mirrors the contrast evident in Martin’s sharp lines and vivid colors. The frame emphasizes these aspects yet remains understated.
While born in the USA, Martin’s Colombian heritage deeply influences her work. She pulls from indigenous subject matter and combines these motifs with the landscape of the human body. Here at Paris, we respond to Martin’s references to the classics: Picasso and Matisse.
