Matt R. Martin
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Matt Martin started painting in 2007 after being influenced by surrealism and representational art.
Diposition is a smoulderingly beautiful study of tangled limbs, bathed in a smoky palette of natural light. The bodies are so entwined they become one. Like many of Rembrandt's works the play of light and the myriad of tones obscures some forms and highlights others making it difficult to distinguish individual bodies- a signature technique of Matt's which subtly enhances the drama and sensual moodiness of his work.
