About Toni Martin

 


Toni Martin (°1988, Monterey, United States) makes paintings and mixed media artworks. By using expressive gestures through fluid movement and precise pigment placement, Toni uncovers her emotional vulnerabilities in her works of art. The artist Toni Martin has a unique way of portraying her empathy for others with an abstract unspoken language of color and form, which take viewers on an emotional journey. 

Her paintings don’t reference recognizable form. By applying abstraction, she brings to life intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal. Ultimately her process creates deeper complexities in the art through manipulating the medium to its fullest extent.

Many of the artists’ works are assembled through bridging an innate connection to music, where her fingers are the instrument and the paint serves as musical notes. By (creating this way) she has created a visual representation of the universal bond between people through music, shapes, sounds and colors. The artistic impulses during Toni’s private creative process may seem random but stem from lucid dreams or deep feeling. Which often impact viewers with their intense Chroma and playful accents. 

Her works feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected transition which Toni hopes fascinates and creates beauty in chaos. Combining unrelated aspects lead to surprising analogies. Toni Martin, from Maryland, now currently lives and works in Dallas.
