FRAGMENTS Martirene Alcántara
The dictionary definition of a fragment is: “a part or small portion broken off, detached or incomplete or, a piece of an artist’s creation.” But Martirene’s fragments are not parts or pieces of creations; they are entire pieces, complete. Intelligent, moderate pieces, full of delicate and soothing poetry that can only be a product of the happiness that making them gives her. Lacking any pretension whatsoever, her pieces are light, lines, color and time detained. And they show the mature eye of an artist at her fullest that does not wait behind the lens, she goes out looking for her creations.
