Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Presents Mär Martinez: Holding Myself Close

Art in the Chambers Opening Reception set for February 27, 2023

Orange County, FL – Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings and Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the Public Art Review Board, will feature the work of Mär Martinez, an interdisciplinary artist specializing in sculptural painting from February 27 through May 18, 2023. The exhibit will be displayed in the Board of County Commissioners Chambers at the Orange County Administration Center in downtown Orlando.

Her work dissects dominance, aggression, and power dynamics through the lens of a culturally enforced binary system. She received a BFA in Painting and a BA in Art History at the University of Central Florida. Of her work, Mär Martinez states, “Holding Myself Close speaks to a desire to protect the self by turning inward, an act of self-reliance and retreat to the known in times of need.”
