Cameron Martin (b. 1970) employs a visual vocabulary of stark naturalism, derived in part from the landscape he experienced while growing up in Seattle. His reductive approach relies upon the relationship between medium and perception, often using different kinds of paint and ink to achieve the distinctive luminous sheens that characterize his images. His work has been exhibited at such diverse locations as the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery in New York, Gallery Min Min in Tokyo, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Seattle Art Museum, the Horticultural Society of New York, City Gallery Wellington in New Zealand, Galerie Ruzicska in Austria, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others, and his pieces hang in the permanent collections of many of those institutions. Martin has received numerous accolades, including the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, and several residencies nationally and internationally. He now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
