What jumps to the eyes in the recent portraits of Adeline Martiny, it is the duality between a black, fine and precise feature, which reproduces with a rigorous realism the details most characteristic of the selected faces; and, in same time, of modern textures, the explosions of colors and abstract forms. The result? Drawings with the crossing of almost severe realism and released environments, with the urban accents and sometimes even oneiric.
In his drawings, one also guesses a bringing together with the graffiti. And, indeed, the artist is not surprised: “When I started to draw, I had many magazines on the graffiti and that influenced me.
Then I met graffiti artists which presented the medium to me, with dimensions risky one… and others which were in the spirit street art “. Gradually, it got excited of this world. But without adopting all the codes of them.
However Adeline expresses a soft glance, sensual and identified like female in her drawings. Balance is not easy, but when it is reached, the result exceeds the standard.
Is philosophy: Do not remain in your zone of comfort, make new experiments. Errors, that belonged to the training!
