While exploring his own ancestral background, Martinez discovered the magnificence of the First Nations of the United States. Solemn Grace is a testament to his deep fascination with delving into the lineages of the countless peoples who inhabit our nation. Martinez' became intrigued by the solemn demeanor of the peoples of Wichita, Apache, Nunivak, Hesquiaht, Sioux, and Ojibwe descent. Within each of the artworks that comprise Solemn Grace, he captures the dignified refinement and delicate grace of the various people he portraits, rendering his subjects magnificent in an effort to communicate the often-forgotten diversity of the First Nations.
