Fidencio Martinez Memphis , TN » • Fidencio Martinez paints in exploration of a range of identity issues, most importantly race and alienation. • He regards his creative practice as a form of atonement for being brought up in a privileged nation instead so nearby his ravaged motherland, Mexico. By manipulating newspaper headlines about border fatalities, drugs, and corruption, he hopes to draw attention to these issues. His goal is to inspire viewers to seek out more information. • His work contains metaphors such as stained paper, to represent the marginalization of his people and the compromised reputation of a once prosperous land.
