Cameron Martin

Cameron Martin (b. 1970) studied at Brown University and the Whitney Independent Study Program. He employs a visual vocabulary of stark naturalism, derived in part from the landscape he experienced while growing up in Seattle. The reductive approach he utilizes in his image making process relies upon the relationship between medium and perception, and he often uses different kinds of paint and ink to achieve the distinctive luminous sheens that has become characteristic of his landscape imagery. Cameron Martin’s work has been exhibited at such diverse locations as the Van Doren Waxter 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, the St. Louis Museum of Art, the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Several of his pieces are included 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.
