Profile: Martha Marshall

 Painting for me is about not thinking too much…

Martha b 11_07 Sm No Hair ColorWithout any advance planning or end in mind, I begin by applying heavy textures and broad strokes to a surface, usually with music playing in the studio, until I am free to ignore the chatter of my left brain. Only then does the real work begin. I like to be surprised by an unusual color combination, or a buildup of textures, or marks that seemingly come out of nowhere. It’s the spontaneity that I strive for.
