Without losing the line: artistic proposal of Martha Jimenez in Camaguey

Camaguey- The artist in Camaguey, Marta Jimenez, knows where the beauty lies, needing the creator's treatment to pass to posterity. From her hands, modeled in clay or from the wonder of the brush on the canvas, sprout as in irrepressible flow magnificent works, thanks to art placed in them by this woman, simple and talented.

Her latest release is an exhibition that she called "Without losing the line" and which is open at the Gallery Julian Morales, at the UNEAC Headquarters in Camaguey.

Martha is characterized by her intensive search for new ways to assume fine arts. Not satisfied with her fabulous sculptures that adorn the Plaza de El Carmen and other heritage sites of the Villa, she found in engraving another way to express herself and she is still embracing the drawing -developed from 1965- as essential in their daily action, to sketch out and to create works.  

Who visits the exhibition "Without losing the line", will admire not only the beauty of the female figure and its external trappings, also will realize how valuable potentials still flow from Martha, who uses techniques, dominated by her, either the modeling in clay, or from the manifest challenge of canvases and rigid matrices to achieve beautiful engravings.

This artist based in the province of Camaguey has known extraordinary successes, such as being awarded by UNESCO and to show their collections in famous galleries in several countries. Not a few specialists -inside and outside the Island- have dedicated spaces in their chronicles, to praise the source that is her talent.

Still, Marta Jimenez is not puffed up and with its simplicity as always, continues laborious and fertile, giving to his work and to Camaguey sufficient reasons for pride.
