Methodical in his approach, Martin’s vivid layering evokes a strong bodily response through representations of objects, people and scenes that delicately balance the abstract and the figurative.  In this video Alex Baker, Director of Fleisher/Ollman in Philadelphia, talks through Martin’s idiosyncratic approach to pastels, as well as discussing Martin’s aesthetic and career achievements and outlining Martin’s important place in contemporary art. Julian Martin has worked from the Arts Project Australia studio since 1988 and has held multiple solo shows at Arts Project Australia (2001, 2003, and 2014) as well as at Australian Galleries, Manningham Gallery, and No Vacancy Gallery. He has been included in numerous group exhibitions including The Armory Show and Outsider Art Fair (Fleisher/Ollman Booth, New York); Spring 1883, Sydney; Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart; Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. His work is in numerous collections including City of Melbourne, Monash University Museum of Art and National Gallery of Victoria (as gifted by Stuart Purves). He is represented by Fleisher/Ollman in the US, and Arts Project in Australia.

FEM-aFFINITY Video Launches to Support National Tour

  To support the exhibition FEM-aFFINITY when it tours regionally and nationally in 2020 and 2021, we've co-created a wonderful video threading the ideas, thoughts and art that propel the exhibition. FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose work share an affinity of subject and process. In this video curator Catherine Bell, alongside exhibiting artists, talks through the affinities, processes and synergies found throughout the exhibition, showing how by situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover shared perspectives and variations on female identity. Featuring works by: Fulli Andrinopoulos, Dorothy Berry, Yvette Coppersmith, Wendy Dawson, Prudence Flint, Helga Groves, Bronwyn Hack, Janelle Low, Eden Menta, Jill Orr, Lisa Reid, Heather Shimmen, Cathy Staughton and Jane Trengove.

The show will also travel Australia, including: Devonport Regional Gallery 25 January - 15 March 2020 Benalla Art Gallery 19 April - 28 June 2020 Bunjil Place 06 March - 25 April 2021 Further dates will be announced.
