About Viv Martin

I am an artist and this blog is about my studio practice. It reflects the work I’m doing at the moment, the ideas, dilemmas and investigations, the things that are going well and things that are not! For completed work and work for sale, look at http://martinstudios.co.uk. Some of my recent projects are documented in the pages here – Flower Power ran through 2009 and Cherry Blossom began in 2010 and is still a current body of work.

My work is concerned with change and learning to live with change. Many of my images are used as metaphors for slow, fast or frequent change and are juxtaposed to reference our responses, including metamorphasis, development of new forms and shapes and reinvention of ourselves.
