In what can be described as ‘unorthodox ethnography’ Marti uses the Internet to meet people who then become his subjects. These encounters provide the inspiration for Marti’s portraiture which includes woven relief and free standing sculptures and video.
Artist + Student + Documentary Project
The Exposure video project is a partnership between Newcastle Art Gallery and Callaghan College, Jesmond Senior Campus. Year 11 students work closely with their Visual Art teachers and Gallery staff to prepare questions to interview exhibiting artists in the Gallery, as well as in their studios. This project provides these students with an insight into the art world and the role of practicing artists; while creating an important educational resource to accompany exhibitions.
This project is proudly sponsored by BMT Tax Depreciation Quantity Surveyors.
