About her work:
Marta Pombo works from an obsessive collection of objects, images and words. Through collage and sculpture we can find families of characters made from scrap materials, objects collected from the street or offered by friends.
Each character reveals it's cynical personality through it's appearance, as well as shows us humiliations and absurd situations of life in an ironic and humorous way.
It’s a poetical, sensitive and meaningful work that hits where it hurts.
