Work by Professor Dennis Martinez of Dixie State University
The exhibit “Frame of Reference” is a span of visual influence in the life of an artist. The work incorporates paintings, drawings, assemblage and installation as it relates to the past, present and future inspirations of an artist from youth to maturity.
Family, friends and historical artistry as life guidance are presented with intellect, intuition and creativity. The artist will be portrayed as student, teacher and philosopher on a life long journey in order to harmonize all elements of artistic expression.
In the words of Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Also featuring installation by students of Professor Martinez: Michael Bishop, Candice Gary, Chelsea Martinez, and Spencer Mathisen
