Martin Southwood

Martin began painting three years ago to fulfil a promise to his younger self. He works mostly in acrylics, sometimes watercolour or coloured pencil.

He says, ‘Sometimes the detail of a painting appears abstract, but more often I find images. It’s usually a sign that I’m on the right track with my work.

It’s always interesting to hear people spot something that I haven’t seen myself.’

He wants to see art back where it belongs: the practice of deep observation. ‘If art was once again central to self-expression, then we would live very different lives.’
