This image was created from textures and patterns discovered and recorded at the north end of Tanybwlch beach, Aberystwyth. Although suggesting an illusory permanence, the rocky landscape of the beach is greatly changed each year after the winter tides.
Martin moved to Wales in 1991, graduating in Interactive Arts from Newport School of Art and Design in 1995. During the final year of his undergraduate studies he began to make digital images for installations interpreting medieval Welsh tales, and these images began to assume a life of their own, individually and as series of images. Welsh history and archaeology have formed the basis of much of his work since, including research for an MA in Celto-Roman Studies.
He has worked as an artist in residence and teaches digital imaging at the University of Wales Aberystwyth, as well as working as a multimedia designer. His work has been exhibited across Wales and internationally, and reflects his ongoing engagement with the visual culture of Wales.
