Artist’s Statement

Kevin S. Martin is inspired by nature, by his surroundings and by moods. He channels all this into his works, yet they remain abstract, open to the viewer and with manifold possible interpretations. Only the format makes this clear. He prefers to paint sections, and uses this to hint at the relative nature of our perception. Like our senses, a picture is limited in size and scope. Using diptyches and triptychs, Kevin builds bridges to master this limitation.

Bio

Born in the mining town of Mansfield in 1960, Kevin was a typical northern boy with an unusual talent for art, working extensively in oils and producing pieces that belied his tender age.

After studying at Mansfield College of Art (1976-1978) Kevin spent some years in the South-West of England, where the dramatic landscapes provided an inspirational contrast to the industrial surroundings of his youth.

Kevin worked in the catering trade for a spell before settling down to dedicate himself to his art on a full time basis, based in a studio in tranquil Buckinghamshire where he produces many stunning examples of contemporary art.

"Today I am totally committed to my work on a full time basis and with this time I am able to experiment with colours and textures to create exciting pieces of work.

"I draw my inspirations from all around, the naturals and the indifferent and having a very vivid imagination makes my artwork pleasing to the eye but with the added dimension of the ’WOW’ factor. Stunning effects created with subtle tones and creative texturing.

“I am constantly improving and refining my techniques to create unique pieces of art.”
