This months ‘Featured Artist’ is Lyndsay Martin, a London based artist working in the realms of photography, collage, found objects and digital media. Having exhibited Lyndsay last year in our open show in London, it is clear that her work continues to develop and transform. We take a look at her recent series ‘Notions Of A Home’ that has an undeniable delicate and personal quality to it. Having exhibited worldwide, this is an artist who will continue to go from strength to strength as her practice grows.
I am a London based artist. My work explores the physical and emotional consequences of human relationships, employing a mixture of photography, collage, found objects and digital media. The mixed media pieces often portray frayed and faceless figures as they collide with idyllic tableaux, patterns and textures in order to articulate their intimate narratives of loss and abandonment.
I look within myself and at my own family history, observing (at times negative, though always human) behaviour of loved ones and the consequences of their actions. Juxtaposing antique objects and environments that have an existing history with the emotions lying latent within these situations is a fascination of mine.
Artists that inspire my own practice include David Lynch, Sarah Lucas, Jenny Saville, Jon Stezaker, Polly Morgan and the sculptures of Berlinde De Bruykere.
