Martha Holmes

Martha captures the essence of the Cornish coastline through abstract studies of colour and light. Her work is emotively charged by a deep connection to the ocean and it’s ever-changing influence on the landscape from which she paints.

Inspired by the Cornish masters - Heron, Hepworth, Nicholson, Scott, Bray - Martha's works in oil immerse the viewer in an emotional dialect, born from a deep-rooted connection to the land where she grew up. Abstract in form, often with large flat areas of colour, Martha’s work captures a raw and honest sense of the landscape - her own experience communicated through colour and expressive mark making.
