Giovanna Martinez Fernandez

2023 Student Art Exhibition

Artist Statement: 

Through every art, there is a story. Laughter, fear, sadness, and bliss shared with a single expression. My collection revisits childhood memories, the way we saw and felt the world as children. I am a painter and digital artist, but I like to experiment with other mediums. I found clay to be quite interesting and fun, it brought me back to the foundations of feeling like a kid. Turning a slab of clay into something amazing and worth keeping. It’s always interesting seeing what a slab of clay or a blank canvas will become, knowing each one will be unique. My goal is to express my feelings in every single one of my works and to inspire others to do the same. I view each of my pieces as a part of me, a part of my thoughts, and a part of what I feel from the moment I start, and from the moment I finish
