Relationships: the ebb and flow

The series represents various stages of relationship. The works express symbolically how men and women interact and connect, or react and disconnect with each other.
Initially the focus is on relationship between male and female, the external expression of the idea. Gradually and naturally the concept evolves and the study becomes more internalized. The focal point becomes more about the metaphysical idea of the masculine and the feminine, and the energies that make up the individual.
Martinez concludes "The external form of the relationship, what appears in the world, is an extension of an internal more important reality, the relationship with one self." For her, one suggests the other.
