British artist Jason Martin effects oscillations between sculpture and painting, with the vigour of action painting but a controlled hand. He is perhaps best known for his monochromatic paintings, where layers of oil or acrylic gel are dragged across hard surfaces such as aluminium, stainless steel or Plexiglas with a fine, comb-like piece of metal or board in one movement, often repeated many times. At STPI, Martin redirected his enduring spirit of experimentation to the medium of pulp and paper.
The STPI 15th Anniversary Collector's Edition marks fifteen years of celebrated collaborations between STPI and its artists.
