Martine Poppe Solo Exhibition at The Vibe Gallery

drowning 300x200 Martine Poppe Solo Exhibition at The Vibe Gallery
June 21st June 26th 2012

The Vibe Gallery is showcasing Martine Poppe in a Solo Exhibition. Her form and technique is of a quality that needed to take centre stage. This exhibition will be showing the very best of Martines’ recent work giving you the opportunity to appreciate first hand this up and coming talent.

Martine Poppe explores perceptions of otherness, the abject and desensitisation on primarily large scale canvases of extreme body types and explicit sexual acts. Charged with a heavy voyeuristic tension, the work hovers between simultaneously emphasising a sense of the human body and emotions whilst also being seemingly dehumanising.

Often using the anonymity of found imagery and faceless compositions, she embraces the objectification of these bodies, placing an emphasis on their physicality and that of the paint. As a counterpoint to the figurative, larger canvases, Martine Poppe’s Skin Tests emphasise relationship between the skin and paint further, as these decontextualised textures focus on the desire to reveal a physicality of the human body and paint.
