About Martin Broadley

 
 
  • Biography
    My artworks, both abstract photography and abstract painting, are largely inspired by the idea of the inevitability of change and decay in our visual world.
    The subject matter being found images. The weather-worn, time altered, faded street images that can be found everywhere, yet I have travelled widely to find them.
    Art created from that that already exists, perhaps made by another hand or altered by time and now shown by me as flat surfaces, abstracted from the real world, largely devoid of time or place. A form of art that Aaron Siskind described as collaborations.

    The portrait paintings that I have relatively recently begun to make are, by contrast, inspired by that female, feminine presence. I am trying to capture, in paint, that moment, that split second of wordless contact. An unspoken exchange. A single glance that lasted a second but lives on indelibly in memory, relived for a lifetime.
