Giuseppe Martino creates carefully sculpted abstract paintings, inspired by moden design and sculpture. Thickly applied acrylic paint and sculpting mediums gives his contemporary work a three dimensional element, sometimes extending more than an inch off the canvas. Ridges, waves and curls work together with colour and negative space to create striking compositions that hone in on his use of colour, shading and texture.
Texture and movement are at the heart of Giuseppe’s work, often using monochromatic colour palettes to draw attention to these rich details. His work will explore landscape and elements of nature, broken down to specific visual cues; a horizon line, layers of earth, a wave or a waterfall. While inspired by nature and the emotional impact of colour, each piece is subject to the viewers interpretation.
