Artist Statement:

David Martínez transforms everyday mundane objects through material choice, context, and spacial placement, causing the viewers to question their perceptions of thinking. This leaves the viewer unsettled in understanding the meaning behind the work, a common theme that is experienced through this feeling of the uncanny. With inspiration stemming from issues and current events, the objects begin to speak with each other, revealing their true meaning. Overall this work is meant for those who take the time to survey and dissect the work into sections to reveal their own interpretation and meaning of the works as a whole.
