Easy Does It. 20" x 20"

Introducing Timothy Michael Martin.

Hmm. Someone seems to be channeling the spirit of the "Fall Color" submissions, had they come in as floor plans. Which would you like to inhabit?...

Indecisive Needs. 14" x 13" (mixed media on paper)

Martin's work draws on his long interest in maps, diagrams and blueprints (spent his childhood amidst such things, gleefully dismantling toys) as well as more current experiences in construction and plumbing.

Another Tactical Defense Implied Through Use 48" x 48"

He reorganizes and reinvents the visual tools of the design trade to convey the complexity of human experience.

Mapping Monet's Lilies 19" x 25" (mixed media on paper)

For instance, an everyday encounter or event can provide a kind of "found" composition for him to manipulate: i.e. an everyday bike ride gets mapped into a well-ordered schematic of social interaction.

Paths Most Traveled 36" x 36", acrylic, latex, and glitter

He makes big paintings, and also these smaller compositions on paper.

Irrigating Thoughts. 14" x 13 (mixed media on paper)

Observation. 14" x 13" (mixed media on paper)

Auditory Response 24" x 24" (painting)

Voortrekker Odyssey, 30" x 48", oil, acrylic, glitter and enamel

Personified Belief 36" x 33"
