Characterised by their rich surfaces, Julian Martin’s pastel works make a unique visual statement. Methodical in his approach, he carefully works from photographs and arranged still life, deconstructing these references to create highly considered compositions. With his pastels evoking a strong bodily resonance, his work is a continuous reinterpretation of, and response to, form. Martin has worked in the Arts Project studio since 1988 and presented his first solo show in 2001. He has exhibited in numerous national and international group shows, and has work in the National Gallery of Victoria, as gifted by Stuart Purves, with work also held in other public and private collections worldwide.
