The Immortal Plena

01 Jul 2022 - 31 Dec 2022
A series of works inspired by two of Martorell’s greatest fascinations: the medieval artistic genre of the Danse Macabre, specifically the woodcuts created by Renaissance artist Hans Holbein, and the Puerto Rican Plena, a folk music genre known for satirizing local news stories and community gossip.
Joining together both styles, the artist depicts both historical figures as well as contemporary professions in Caribbean society through a mixed media installation that marries the rhythm of Plena with the morbid festivity of the Danse Macabre. Antonio Martorell is a famous Puerto Rican painter, graphic artist, and writer who exhibits throughout Puerto Rico and the United States.
