Amanda Martinez is an innovative sculptor forging the aesthetics of contemporary art one piece at a time. Maake Mag sits down with Martinez in her sun-filled Bushwick studio as she puts the finishing touches on her newest piece, Testament, which will be on display during the 2019 Spring/Break Art Show. As Martinez gears up for two upcoming solo exhibitions both in California and abroad; we reflect upon her personal journey which finds its roots in Greenville, South Carolina. Surrounded her extensive assortment of hand tools, we uncover the process which makes Martinez’s work monumentally sublime and discuss the transformative ethos behind the work.
