Statement

Gina Martynova is a mixed media artist. Her artwork fuses elaborate technical designs with a touch of whimsy to create surreal worlds filled with bold dramatic characters and deep symbolism. Many of her pieces explore the representation of the female form in folklore, fashion and nature. Eerie and inviting images are presented simultaneously. A tension between opulent detail and vast negative space, essential to her aesthetic, is borrowed from Eastern Philosophy and provides insight into Gina's upbringing as a third-culture-kid growing up in Asia.
