Paul Martin

Paul Martin Martin is an English painter who has developed an unusual oeuvre. His large oil paintings are rich in colour and texture and often contain references to literature and other works of art. Smaller works are often preliminary studies for larger work, and are strong, often tonal in treatment.

Inspired by such art expressions of the past as icons and frescoes , Martin is like a poet who uses modern abstract treatment of planes and surfaces to translate ideas, feelings and human experiences into a new metaphor.

More recently Martin has produced a number of paintings with religious themes, some inspired by the Greek Orthodox tradition.
