The naked form communes intimately with nature in the works of Monterrey born artist, Ismael Martinez. To study movement, the effects of light and our connection to the earth from birth to the grave is the passion that shows through in his paintings. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites he attempts to give new life to older methods such as using tempera along with oils giving the past a contemporary voice.

His surrounding landscapes are part of the narration, elements that act as symbols, metaphorically linking the human experience, nature within, to mother earth, the surrounding nature without. Whether it is the nature to resist or the willingness to listen in silence, his work both challenges us to contemplate our place in the universe while also letting us observe in repose the light in the universes within us. What emerges is a sacred beauty that speaks not to religion but to divine humanity.
