Pow Martinez – ‘Clunker’

Silverlens Galleries, Makati City, Philippines

3 November – 3 December 2022

Pow Martinez describes his current process as “what a nature painter might do in a digital landscape.” Clunker presents a collection of recent paintings featuring his now familiar solid-eyed, rubber band-lipped, and ‘80s era mullet-rocking characters. Mostly languishing by their lonesome, we see them while away the time either channel surfing or doom-scrolling, with bodies in strange contortions if not already melding with the furniture. Viewed in light of the prolonged lockdowns, these isolated figures, navigating the confines of the not-so-great indoors, become eerily familiar and may be our collective portraits.
