Martin Ireland

Martin Ireland

How far can the artist depart from visible reality and still be convincing? A lot of my art is about research. Producing art is a fine balance between exploratory pursuits and saleable items. I have to make a living out of what I produce. In the end what really inspires me is a satisfied customer making a purchase weather in a gallery or from a direct commission.
