Adam Martin, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
I was born in a small town in Central Virginia, USA, May 15, 1986. I was homeschooled, and then attended a small unconventional private school. At the University of Virginia, I studied science, but changed to English Literature— art history, language arts, and critical analysis were my key focus during these formative years. I have always been an artist. I recognized this about myself as a child. I cannot remember when I began to experiment with painting. In my youth I studied visual art, music, creative writing, and sculpture – and have received formal instruction in all of these areas. Having practiced these forms of self-expression facilitated my self-awareness, and I declared myself publicly as an artist in 2012. In January 2014 I dedicated myself to painting. I decided to paint the paintings I wanted to see in the world and stopped painting what I thought others wanted to see. I gained national representation with Alexander Salazar Fine Art the same year, and had my first opening in San Diego, California July 25, 2014. After returning to Virginia I co-founded the Sperryville Artist Cooperative and continue to be active there as a resident artist.
Where are you from originally?
I am originally from Culpeper, a small town in Central Virginia, USA.
What is the narrative of your work?
My work is a conglomerate of ubiquitous elements counterposed with rare, precious, or divine elements. I incorporate spirituality and mysticism to conceptualize the progression of consciousness. I am interested in exploring concepts like duality, dichotomy, and inversion or reversal. I think that art and the statements made by successful works are often quite simple, and its humanity that is complex. Though my work and its execution can be complicated and layered with both objective symbols and concepts, the statements I am making are inherently simple by nature.
Where can your paintings be seen?
Due to the pandemic and most in-person exhibits being closed, my work is most easily seen online. I am pleased to be participating in a virtual art exhibition based out of London, UK, hosted by Virtual Artists Gallery. The exhibition will open on Sunday, March 28, from 10am -12pm (PT) and it will remain open to the public for 2 weeks. To join the event, you https://www.virtualartists.co.uk/visit-our-gallery
