“Landscape, environment, place; trace, fragment, essence; erosion, wear and passing of the time: light, clarity, wind, water …

These are key concepts in my work, in my identity and origin. Parameters that I’m always tied to, keeping me in a constant balance, and allowing me to work with order and harmony.

ISLAND, as a reality and metaphor. The SEA, my teacher, father and creator of ancient treasures. NATURE, mother of the raw material and the elemental energy.

With all this combined, and harmony with the material I work intuitively and spontaneously; visceral and fortuitous. So the result, or rather the response, appears by itself and by surprise. Casually like the SEA: always, never different, but never, ever the same.”

Martina Pont

For Platon, knowledge and love are inseparable: the desire to go beyond intuition and sensible ideas, the true reality. The passion of love is what makes the soul grow wings, or even breaking the sensible world of things. EQUILIBRIUM is the name given to the pieces that Martina Pont presents Testa Gallery, research between balance and imbalance of love, passion and serenity, longing and heartbreak, unbalanced reason.
