Paintings by Martin B. Anderson

Artist Reception July 5th 5 – 9 p.m. (With Live Music)

“My artwork has been about people for most of my life. I go out and listen to music often & sometimes make sketches & take photos. I use these as source material for my paintings.” – Martin Anderson

The subject of Martin’s art is people. He works in acrylics, charcoal, pastel & mixed media. When he first started his art he worked in a completely abstract way (non-objective). Then he discovered the surreal method of finding his subject in the tool marks of his media (brush marks in painting), like seeing a subject in the clouds in the sky. This fascinated Martin and his subject usually turned out to be people. Because he had always lived in the city, this should not have been a surprise, but because this surreal method was so hard to manage subject wise, and he wanted to cover some human topics that he had feelings for, or was fascinated by, he abandoned most of this surreal method. Martin started using sketches & photos along with some accidental methods in his drawings & paintings. All Martin’s work has abstract, surreal and expressive elements in it. Much like Picasso he is more interested in line and shape then color but does feel that color has an expressive feeling.
