Martine Poppe Solo Exhibition

This exhibition will be showing the very best of Martines’ recent work giving you the opportunity to appreciate first hand this up and coming talent.

Martine Poppe explores perceptions of otherness, the abject and desensitisation on primarily large scale canvases of extreme body types and explicit sexual acts. Charged with a heavy voyeuristic tension, the work hovers between simultaneously emphasising a sense of the human body and emotions whilst also being seemingly dehumanising. 
Often using the anonymity of found imagery and faceless compositions, she embraces the objectification of these bodies, placing an emphasis on their physicality and that of the paint. As a counterpoint to the figurative, larger canvases, Martine Poppe’s Skin Tests emphasise relationship between the skin and paint further, as these decontextualised textures focus on the desire to reveal a physicality of the human body and paint.
