After two very successful previous exhibitions at Mandell’s Gallery, we are delighted to be hosting Martin Laurance’s third exhibition.
Martin’s style is unique, not derivative of, or in the manner of any other artist. His artworks can contain found paper pertaining to the subject, a shipping chart used as the basis for a coastal view, with layered paper and collage. These elements provide a strong textural feel, this combined with his confidence in using strong colours result in highly individual work.
Martin is equally happy with monochrome work. His oil paintings, at first glance, could be read as abstract works but on closer examination become more representational. His recent paintings of the Norfolk coast feature strongly in this exhibition.
