Super Ply by Barbara Martin

Founders Gallery

Artist Statment

"My ongoing Super Ply series consists of black and white acrylic, oil pastel and pencil paintings on bare plywood. I begin with a random hand doodled abstract monotype on the bare wood, then paint with 2 small brushes and my hands. I add details with oil pastels and pencil. I usually work in silence alone in my studio, but some of these have been created live at art events and reflect the mood I sense in the room. As a process painter, I allow each painting to develop organically so the character and context are not planned at all. Any text becomes clear at the end when the painting resolves itself. This series is supplemented with works similar in style and media but using color." Barbara Martin
