Montauk Art Show August 16-18
Carter Martin’s photography tends to focus on a deeply intimate observation of the unique beauty of nature. Her flowers are portraits in every sense of the word. They are also quite unique in her presentation of each flower, often abstractly placed within settings of reflections, light and shadow, allowing the viewer to focus on the individual depth and beauty of each petal. Each image is as unique as the subject she presents.
Her perspective of everyday objects is presented in such a way that one becomes a part of the image, absorbed by her attention to detail and larger than life size. Her work often evokes an atmosphere of solitude, deep reflection and quiet contemplation.
Ms. Martin does not recall a time when she wasn’t engaged in creation or the study of art. She received her BFA in Art History with honors from The University of Texas at Austin. She found that her historical studies of art made a significant impact on her own artwork, especially her photography, allowing her to evoke greater depth and an intimate, emotional quality she seeks in her work.
