In the words of the painter: Popocatépetl & Iztaccíhuatl (1997), by Martha Joy. “"Distance, light, color, and vivid effect of these elements on a flat surface with pigments, is a continuous and enjoyable challenge. I try to capture the atmosphere of the places that I consider beautiful: mountains and deserts of Mexico are themes that I explore through my painting; its rugged and difficult terrain, the beauty of the shapes and textures of the earth, changes in color and light, as well as shadows, are a great subject for painters (to) enjoy during their lifetime.”  Autumn Sonnet (Grand Topilejo)(1995), by Martha Joy.
