Fergus Martin: Outside Inside


Fergus Martin / Outside Inside /

10 April – 17 May 2014

I wanted to do something with the calm and storms of the outside and inside.

The Dearest Thing Ever Made, Stop, Storms, A Chair, A Tree. The images are poignant for me, as if they had a kind of sweet strangeness.

Green On Red Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of new photographic and sculptural work by Fergus Martin on Thursday, April 10, 2014.

Martin's work is executed with extreme rigour and control but is ardently expressive. Underneath the cool, pristine surfaces is a torrent of ideas and emotions, a distillation of everyday experience.

His ability to convey power through images of a chair or table is a moving part of his work.

Stop and The Dearest Thing Ever Made are two free-standing steel works in the exhibition. These pieces are expressive punctuation marks playing with scale and silence and command the space along with a mysterious steel box of storms, a haunting tree and a startling chair.

Storms , 2014, Steel box with sound, mp3 player, speaker, 25 x 42 x 10cms, 20mins
