Martin Irish is an abstract artist based in Inverness. He focused on creating a visually evocate series of paintings for this latest solo exhibition.

Martin explores the subtle nuances of form and texture to create deeply absorbing artworks that explore the depths and possibilities of abstraction. Each painting invites a unique journey of discovery through its ethereal yet captivating abstract form.

Light and Dark are major themes in this work, both in terms of mood and composition. Through the use of varied surfaces, I create dynamic pieces that can be interpreted differently from each vantage point and time of day. This is particularly prominent in the aluminum work.
There are elements of form that evoke the essence of landscapes while remaining true to the essence of abstract expressionism.
