Julia C. Martin: Roots
August 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
August 23–September 3
Reception: August 26, 5-7 pm
Strata Gallery presents an Emerging Member solo exhibition, Roots by Arizona-based artist Julia C. Martin. The exhibition opens August 23, with a special reception on August 26 from 5-7 pm.
Julia C. Martin’s work deals primarily with the topics of mortality, ephemerality, and time. She photographs in the land to explore these concepts. Roots will explore the body’s relationship to the earth and their tactile and intimate connection.
Martin stated, “I’m excited to be an Emerging Artist Member at Strata Gallery and to be a part of the Santa Fe art community. Having previously lived here, I’ve always admired it. My work is about the relationship between the female body and the land. I’m interested in exploring how we perceive this connection and how the ephemeral nature of both the body and the land plays into the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. I work in a tactile manner, and this exhibition will be just as much about the installation as it is about the images.”
Julia C. Martin received her MFA in photography from Arizona State University and her BA in film and photography from Montana State University. Her work has been exhibited and published nationally. She is currently based in Phoenix, Arizona. This is her first solo show in New Mexico.
Strata Gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesday–Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibition, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.
