Artist Statement—Mary Martin

 

Inspired by the beauty of seasonal changes in the landscape and moment to moment variations in the sea and sky, I am compelled to covey the emotions they evoke in me as an expression of praise and gratitude to the Creator of All.  Choosing a scripture that illustrates nature praising God is often the starting point of a painting or collage.

The chosen scripture is handwritten on small strips of paper and placed in water. Using a layering process that begins by saturating a sheet of watercolor paper with the blessed water, light washes of fluid acrylic paint are brushed across the paper. Strips of plastic wrap, torn pieces of wax paper and rice paper, and cuttings of cotton gauze are laid on the paper.  Each of these elements is painted in turn with deeper washes of color.  Just before they dry, the pieces are removed, revealing layers of texture beneath.

Searching through the layers, I see objects that tell the story of the scripture take form.  I work to highlight the objects by painting around them or by adding collage elements, enticing the viewer to peer into the layers, looking for a glimpse of the scripture and emotion that inspired the art work.
