I wanted to create more contemporary pieces of art; truly original pieces that would bring a sense of beauty and intrigue to any wall space. Resin gave me a fluidity and flexibility to create wonderfully reflective and tactile 3D artwork, creating art that not only satisfied me as an artist, but allowing me to create artwork that invoke emotions, interest and intrigue in others.

I am currently drawing and painting landscapes of places I know. They are mainly urban woodlands and parks.  Making these drawings helps me properly appreciate the open land we still have around us in cities.

Coastal landscapes offer me a creative beginning for my

work as an oil painter and land, sea and sky often come

together as a mixture of precise and experimental mark


My work attempts to show a moment in time while

suggesting a sense of timelessness moving between realism

and abstraction within different parts of the painting

capturing atmosphere and an undefined narrative.

The figure is also heavily represented in my work either in a

very specific recognisable way or as an anonymous being

channelling memory and pinning down a sense of place.

Martin Barrett
Martin worked in a number of studios during his career, including Wildman Corner studio in Walthamstow, and the Old Manor Park library. He started off his career printmaking, both screen printing and etching, then moved on to drawing and painting (watercolour, acrylic and oils) and finally sculpture.

His subject matter explored urban landscapes and consumerist culture and refected his general concerns about the environment, pollution and human hubris. He was fascinated by the way society is pulled relentlessly by our emotion, although hopelessly believing we are rational. Some of his work seeks, in a not too serious way, to highlight some of these contradictions.

Martin unfortunately passed away this year after battling frontal temporal dementia for a number of years.
