Ned Martin
"Spirits Through Time II," Abstract Figurative Painting

2021

$5,400

About

This painting by Ned Martin blends the artist's signature abstract style with portraiture that is reminiscent of the Old Masters. The softly-executed face and neck of the woman in this painting is contrasted by textured abstract shapes that compose the rest of the painting, namely, the figure's orange, red, and green clothing and silver grey background. This piece is part of a series of paintings called Spirits Through Time. Made with oil paint on board, this painting 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.”
