Tom Martin
Digital Artist

 

Tom MartinI use photography to create conceptual artwork, which is based on everyday life and objects. My works can appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, meanings shift, and past and present fuse. Time and memory always play a key role. The end result sometimes radiates a cold, latent violence…and at times, a disconcerting beauty emerges.

I strive to isolate the “picture behind the picture” and bring it to the forefront…in essence, repositioning the stream of daily moments that punctuates the human drama.

I incorporate a wide variety of tools to include everything from brushed acrylic overlays, digital brush work, color modification, and compositing to achieve a final variation of the original image.  I print on Hahnemuhle German Etching paper or on stretcher bar canvas.
