George Martin

Born in Massachusetts in 1951, an award-winning painter who resides on the North Shore. The partnership between art and nature has been a central theme throughout my life. Influenced by representational and impressionist styles, my landscapes and other subjects are painted from life, memory and personal references. Plein air painting restores my passion for nature and awakens each of my senses. I am not seeking to duplicate an experience but to choose and design what I think conveys my impression of the story. The visual vocabulary can be challenging and must be boldly distilled to create a believable account of the natural stage. As witness to the constant movement of light on the landscape and other subjects, I am carried deep into the tapestry of color, value, atmosphere and composition. Each occasion presents its own emotional energy that will influence elements that can move a painting in surprising directions.
