Following Palindrome Series #2: Conversion

By Pamela Diaz Martinez | December, 2011

The art of Pamela Diaz Martinez is alive with magical realism, detailed scenes of lifelike clarity with whispers of surreal circumstances that provoke a sense of otherworldliness. Martinez frequently used her canvases to address the ever-present pull between the physical and the spiritual. Like a palindrome, a word or phrase that is spelled the same forwards or backwards (such as “civic,” “racecar,” or “Was it a rat I saw?”), many of the pieces in Following Palindrome Series #2: Conversion offered surprises and revelations for those that explored the drawings' and paintings' themes and intricacies from all angles.
