In Her Brixton Studio, Spanish Artist Natalia Gonzalez Martin Puts a Millennial Spin on Medieval Materials of Wood Panel and Rabbit-Skin Glue

We caught up with the artist at her studio as she prepared for several upcoming exhibitions.
When I visited Natalia Gonzalez Martin just before Christmas, I recognized some Polvorones, a traditional Spanish holiday cookie, nestled on her shelves alongside a well-thumbed copy of Ovid’s Metamorphosis, and books on Baroque painters and Renaissance masters. It’s a bookshelf you might expect to find in the office of a museum conservator, but a quick scan of the clutter in the rest of the room, haphazardly wrapped paintings, and the remnants of instant ramen noodles in the trash can, situated me in the studio of a young artist.
