Traditionally when one thinks of Fine Art the medium for presentation is canvas with either oils or watercolours. Similarly with sculpture it has always been stone – marble, sandstone, soapstone, alabaster and others.
Terrence Martin (Terry) is a modern day innovator, a true artist in Digital Fine Art. He uses a range of recognised traditional mediums, - pencil, charcoal, paper, canvas, paints and brushes. But as a modern artist he then transfers his images to digital platform via iPad, software and technology, to then further create his wonderful, vivid and exciting art. His works subtly express a unique vision in colour and perspective – from full seascapes, landscapes and panoramas, to life studies (nudes), music interpretation and dance – all reflective of Terry’s own unique, fulsome life and experience.
And so it is with visual art - many changes are now occurring in a rapid succession. Much of Modern Art is now displayed electronically through a wide range of mediums. Light and image generation is measured in ‘pixel per inch’. But it is as always still how the viewer responds and feels to the imagery presented not the technology or medium of presentation
Terry’s forte has always been in Design – he was a practicing architect for over 40 years. As a young man growing up in and studying in Sydney, Terry was greatly influenced by Brett Whiteley with whom he shared a warm friendship and appreciation of his art.
Now Terry has returned to his original passion – contemporary art.
The Art form he presents is a grand convergence of spontaneity, freehand sketching, photography, digital editing and printing. It’s exciting and quite different.
Since debuting in 2011, Terry has won commendations in over 10 local and international Art exhibitions. His work has now been included in the worldwide art book, “Current Masters 2015”. He exhibited in 2016 at Spectrum Art Fair in Miami (Florida) and at the Artexpo New York in 2017.
Terry has accepted a further invitation from Artifact Gallery in New York to solo exhibit again in New York 2019 at another prestigious major International Art Exhibition.
But for now here you have the opportunity to browse and appreciate his art. Nine White rooms – each offers a different and eclectic perspective. Enjoy
