Natalia Gonzalez Martin Spain, b. 1982
Natalia Gonzalez Martin works on a small scale, using traditional painting techniques that draw their influence from Christian religious iconography and medieval illuminated manuscripts informed by her Spanish customs and heritage. Predominantly working with the female figure, she uses minutely detailed brushstrokes to paint intimate corners of the female body – the curves of the neck, the ear, the toes - creating an erotic tension between desire and the forbidden.
Natalia Gonzalez Martin graduated with a BA in Fine Art from City & Guilds of London Art School in 2017.
Recent solo and group exhibitions include I Saw Something Else Under The Sun, Galerie Sébastien Bertrand, Geneva (2021); A New Artworld, Guts Gallery, London (2021); I Am Unsure As To If Is Still Alive, Quench Gallery, Margate (2021); Always Winter, Brooke Benington Gallery, London (2020); Pending…, San Mei Gallery, London (2020), YICCA 2018, Hernandez Art Gallery, Milan (2018); and Shelter Exhibition, The Take Courage Gallery, London (2018).
Gonzalez Martin lives and works in London.
