«Dave Canterbury`s apology» Figurative Sculpture by Nils Erichsen Martin 2018

$ 2,500
  • Description
    Nils Erichsen Martin's ceramics has a distinct style. He takes on a scientific approach with his artwork, researching into the different aspects of how form is perceived. He mixes elements of cubist drawing and pop art painting onto ceramic wall objects or ceramic sculpture.

    He often creates juxtapositions between physical form with the clay, the illusion of form through oxide pencil drawing and the decomposition of form through flat patterns of black stains or bright colors. Seeking to intrigue the eye by creating large contrasts.

    As important as the visual outcome, Martin is also a storyteller. Through his method of creating ceramics, a multi-layered narrative appears where the object/sculpture, the drawing and sometimes also the paintings highlight’s different aspects of the same story. This creates a three-dimensional storytelling. This approach makes his style of ceramics unique.

    From an early age, Martin was trained in the tradition of drawing, painting and sculpture and felt equally competent doing either. As a student he figured out how to combine all three and apply them through ceramics. That is how he found his niche.

    At school he studied the futuristic utility ware of Nora Gubrandsen and Sevres porcelain. Martin was also influenced by Picasso's sculpture, Leger's painting, graffiti art and Hip-Hop culture. His working method, mixing flat and round, his studies and early influences all come to play.
