Still Lifes 

"I believe that the correct context is to treat Martel, straightforwardly, as an ARTISTIC GENIUS and VISIONARY AESTHETIC PHILOSOPHER who, although he straddles - with some difficulty - two very different cultural worlds (Belgian Post-Impressionism and Pennsylvania Impressionism), remains true to his principles, and instead invents/creates a softer, "more feminine,” personal style whose unique view of the world is not unlike that of Florine Stettheimer or Georgia O'Keeffe."
