May-Ling Martinez | Luminous Emergence
Closing Reception: September 10
Martinez weaves associations together from iconography found in How-To books designed to facilitate an understanding of our world. As an editor, Martinez uses these visual systems, as well as unoccupied space, to explore how this approach satisfies an innate need to understand and connect with our surroundings.
May-ling Martinez was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives and works in San Diego, California. She received an MFA from San Diego State University and BA in Communications and Visual Arts from San Juan’s Sacred Heart University. She has exhibited extensively in the San Diego regions and was a 2007-2008 recipient of the San Diego Art Prize in the Emerging Artist category.
