ABOUT Christopher H. Martin

Bold yet meditative, dynamic and serene, the works of Christopher H. Martin harness the passions and intricate subtleties of nature. 

The success of Martin’s works is due in part to his signature practice of verre églomisé. This “gilded glass”, or reverse glass painting, is accomplished by working on the back plane of Lucite surfaces, beginning with the foreground and layering upwards of multiple compositions, one upon another, to achieve a depth and luminosity unattainable with traditional canvas.

Martin’s radical reinterpretation of the art form allows for a freedom of expression reflecting contemporary dialogue. Martin’s artwork takes an interpretative view of natural patterns.

Through his paintings, Christopher seeks to create an organic development of form, depth and color working together to create a unique expression.
