B. United Kingdom 1983
Graham Martin (b. 1983, Scotland) places the human body within an array of architectural environments, exploring the relationship between man, the manufactured, and the natural world. Informed by the scholars Jack Halberstam and José Esteban Muñoz, Martin focuses on liminal space alongside notions of queerness and the passing of time. Using washes of paint, drip effects, and gritty, rough brushstrokes, Martin’s paintings evoke the eerie feeling of desertion. Tightly tied to the pandemic which resulted in many empty and abandoned venues, Martin’s work displays vulnerable, often nude, male figures in varying spaces of isolation.
