Ned Martin
"New Beginnings," Abstracted Birds Painting

2021

$12,300

About

This abstract painting of flying birds in the sky is made with oil paint on aluminum panel. On the bottom half of the canvas, five white birds with dark feathers on the tips of their wings fly in a formation through a primarily blue sky that is rendered in the artist's signature abstract style, with areas of orange, grey, and white, giving a sense of nature behind the birds. This piece is wired and ready to hang. Located in Brooklyn, Ned Martin is inspired by hectic city life. His work touches on the subjects of nature and community, which are drawn from his childhood memories of rural Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland. Martin’s work is a commentary on the global society, and the idea that everything is connected as one. After studying Fine Arts at Towson State University in Maryland, Martin continued his formal art training at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. Embracing his training and his meticulous process, Martin grinds his own paints. He has painted en plein air on the River Seine in Paris, Scotland, and Italy, all of which have shaped his artistic vision. Ned Martins ays of his work, “I have long believed artists are like mirrors. My job is to reflect that which others are missing while they go about their busy lives. I somehow wish my paintings were less biased, yet, my own emotions from life experiences are in every painting I create. While I still struggle with the idea, I must be completely honest that every painting is a self-portrait.”
