ARTIST

Christopher Martin

“My works are a challenge to me on many levels, I seek a balance between organic formation with a painterly construct. If I sense that it is not clear whether my work was formed from heat, air, water, or a painted expression, then I feel that the piece is a success. To find a natural sense of existence is my intention. Void of overt narrative or implied suggestions I want the atmosphere around my work to vibrate with energy and balance.

Organic Expressionism is a succinct way to describe my process. I start with a clear acrylic panel and apply heat, wind, water, brush, and pigment in reverse order to create my paintings. In reverse glass painting, the artist works from foreground to the background; the initial strokes being the most imperative and the final being of very little consequence; the inverse of a canvas.

By engaging forms of interlaced ovals, linear movements, arcs, and fields of color, I seek to produce a unique visual expression in each painting. As a botanist who crosses variant orchids to create a beautiful new strain, I fuse various applications and forms to evolve my paintings. In the end, I paint to create a strong aesthetically engaging presence that evokes a calm excitement of natural beauty.” – Christopher Martin
