Martine Gutierrez

Guatemalan-American artist Martine Gutierrez (b. 1989, Berkeley, CA) produces staged photographic self-portraiture that seeps into culture at large via billboards, films and books as well as traditional gallery presentations. Gutierrez effortlessly creates a stage and a crucible where modern identity may take place. Her work elides hard taxonomical boundaries of gender, race, indigeneity and class, and looks forward to the future of femininity as it freely samples the textures and strategies of portraiture through history.

Martine Gutierrez lives and works in New York.
