Teresa Martin develops original abstract forms, combining her casting experience with a desire to extend this process, exploring positive and negative textures and new uses of materials. Their uniqueness comes partly from the complex process forming them. She doesn’t believe in making life easy for herself, relishes a challenge and desires to take her work further into the unknown.
When in an alternative mood, she also creates works inspired by animal textures and forms as seen in their environment. Going beyond the realism of the animal’s presence she expresses more aspects of their physical makeup.
During my Sculpture Degree at Winchester School of Art 1980-83, I came to the conclusion that the creative experience ought to be accessible to more people. Hence I teach at,Northbrook Art College, Worthing, and for Aspire Sussex in Southwick and Steyning where I have been sharing my enthusiasm for sculpture ever since.
