Paul Martin's artwork is a study in variety: mediums, elements, dimensions.
In his artist's statement, he says his drawings and paintings are mixed media - "for no particular reason, they just turn out that way from the paints, pastels, pencils, charcoals, etc. that I have available," it reads.
It says some of his works can be described as abstract landscapes.
"An abstract landscape would include elements found in representational landscapes - like a line indicating horizon, or other transitional areas between earth and sky, but the elements may not all be representational," Martin explains. "Parts of some of my drawings may include representational shapes related to sky for example, such as stars.
"There are all kinds of landscapes around us: interior ones, the views through windows - rectangles - where the window sill may be considered the transition from earth to sky or above ground. We live in and see life through landscapes framed by our vision all the time. Seeing the earth from an aircraft is quite an abstract view which changes as the aircraft changes height. Such views influenced some of the earlier pieces in the exhibit, while in later drawings and paintings the landscape boundaries dissolve."
