Martin’s paintings are investigations in color, form and texture, ranging from bold and graphic to gestural and expressionistic. Their surfaces are often distressed or collaged with elements including shellacked Wonder Bread, broken vinyl records and papier mâché forms. Martin is deeply engaged with the history of abstraction, andmany of his own paintings incorporate homages to artistic influences such as Paul Feeley, Yayoi Kusama and Alfred Jensen. Martin has described his art as “turning up the volume” of painting and many of his works refer to musicians including Miles Davis, John Coltrane and the “Godfather of Soul” James Brown.
