When Abby Martin began streaming her thoughts and emotions through a paint brush, she discovered her niche. The elaborate and intricate detail that flows from her onto the canvas in a perfect distribution of dots and swirls reflects this introspective artist’s ability to juggle and organize the chaos of the human mind into a comprehensive piece of fully charged beauty.
The explosive energy of each piece calls to life with psychedelic force the different realities Abby treads as she deconstructs the world around her in constant search of balance and truth. The themes conveyed in this art are never static or one-dimensional but rather highly dynamic as a result of her embrace and examination of the good and bad existing in life’s many different arenas. Whether reflecting on the natural world or the manmade world, the awakening or deadening of consciousness, cultural controlling dichotomies, the power of the mystic and all that is unknown, the condition of the social, the construction of the economic, or the corruption of the political, Abby’s work displays an intense passion for life and her deep desire to engage others in her vision.
Over the past four years a variety of different venues in San Diego have exhibited Abby’s paintings. She is now living in Oakland and is currently exhibiting her paintings and photography in several locations around the bay area.
