Martin’s work begins with memories, his childhood, this is how his process starts, vivid recollections of whom he is and where he came from. A journey from the Past to the Present, Situations, Surroundings, the people he meets and the journey Martin’s life has taken so far.
Martin classes his work as Abstract Expressionism and explores printmaking and digital art techniques. Combining both methods together, Martin creates abstract compositions which are full of personal emotion, colour, shape and energy.
Martin has spent his career in education, Comprehensives in London, Teacher’s Colleges in Nigeria and Further Education in Weybridge. During much of this time he has also written poetry, attending Wey Poets, Guildford, co-editing Weyfarers, getting poems into numerous magazines and publishing five short books.
After retirement, he has had more time to pursue art, describing his work at first as Collages, later simply as cut-outs. He has shown his work in coffee-bars, Guildford Library, Guildford Institute and Godalming Museum. He is especially pleased to be showing his work at Clyde & Co where, as previous visits have demonstrated the work is of a very high standard.
