Wence & Sandra Martinez

Jacksonport, WI

Contemporary flatweave rooted in legacy. As a couple, the artists have forged a unique marriage of his pattern-driven weaving and her signature glyphic drawing. A master weaver with 40+ years of experience, Wence remains dedicated to the traditional methods and materials of his heritage. Advanced studies in wool dyeing, design and strong mentors provided the tools Wence needed to rise above anonymous production weaving in his native Oaxaca, a rare achievement. Sandra has been focused on her primitive drawing practice for over 30 years. Inspired by Haitian metal work and automatic writing, her glyphs honor and engage nature and spirit.
