Resilient, 2017
Edwin Martinez
36 x 36 inches
Oil on Canvas
Matinez's work explores the relationships between people, communities, governments and countries, and also reflects the negative elements that ruin harmonious relationships between individuals – elements such as hatred, divisiveness and inequality. In the midst of these, a boy wanders, calmly holding an umbrella, wholly unbothered by his surroundings as though the umbrella is his shield against the negativities and tumults of life. His calm demeanour shows that whatever extenuating circumstances we may face, we would manage to get by. Through this, Martinez hopes to express that, despite the problematic world we live in today, he believes we are all admiringly resilient people who would flourish and thrive in such a world.
