Gathering ∙ 聚有時

Aestheticism of beauty, grace and dynamism is germinated here to create a focus of attitude, experience and perception that are seized by the dreamlike contemplation amongst the natural landscape. The Chinese deified use of black and white is texturized on the medium of Xuan paper and by the oozing technique. Rigid lines of the mountain reverberate with the rate of mist to haze over the landscape, turned into a surreal realm of timeless, spaceless multiverse.

In this series, Martha approached her paintings with an objective of expressing her inner self, the sombre expressions from her interior is projected onto the exterior of the monumental landscape. Despite the use of sombre theme, throughout this series, shades of subdued colour are building up like condensation of the water cycle to express the silver lining.
