Donald Martiny’s Urpflanze
Madison Gallery presents Donald Martiny’s latest exhibition, Urpflanze, following his successful debut at the 59th Venice Biennale.
Martiny delves into the emotionally charged themes of blue during the Romanticism era, where the blue flower represented desire, love, and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. “Urpflanze” translates to “original plant” in German, which refers to Martiny’s interpretation of the blue flower; he uses his artistic experience and masterful movements to represent this elusive flower and “original plant” in spontaneous ways. An opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 6 from 5-8pm, with the artist in attendance.
