"An artist who draws on the qualities of light and color, finding meaning and poetics in the everyday rituals of family, home and landscape, Martel infuses emotion and narrative in the objects of our daily lives.  Charmed by the atmospheric beauty of the natural world, Martel’s brushwork describes in clever swirls and turns the delicacy of shimmering leaves bathed in light or the shadow of the underside of a bowl of weighted fruit.  The exhibition mines the tensions that lurk between finish and process, fine art and decoration, drawing and color."
