PRIVATE VIEW

Tom Martin: Perpetual Motion
May 17, 2017

The opening unveiled 18 new artworks; Tom's latest projects include sculptural experimentations with new materials such a resin as well as his trade mark, bold and bright, large scale paintings. In 2014, Martin began exploring the role money and politics play in people's lives around the world. 'Perpetual Motion' refers to the perception of the banks as a self- driven, closed, self-sustaining system. His latest works portray the concept that we are controlled and driven by money as a society, something which deeply concerns Martin.
