Sexual Health Painting by Adam W. Martin
Detailed description of painting: Six Nations Sexual Health Website
Adam W. Martin
Six Nations of the Grand, b.1976
Acrylic on Canvas
30” X 22”
This painting was inspired by floral patterns regularly found in beadwork by artists of many Metis and First Nations cultures. The figures are made up of a single plant of which they are both growing from and are surrounded by demonstrating interconnectedness of life. They are close together in an embrace to depict a relationship built on mutual respect. Deep green leaves and warm sprouting flowers reflect a strong and healthy relationship.
