Martin Bush UK Artist

Contemporary Expressive Abstract Painter

Martin Bush Fine Art in Plymouth, UK on Houzz



These paintings were inspired by the colours and energy found with in Thai Temples as well as the Thai culture which has been part of my life as an artist for the 20 years. The complexities and detail using gold leaf and free flowing marks meld into the sensation I feel and breathe within this world. In some I have used the first few characters of the Thai alphabet which has also fascinated me with the shape and form of these stylish letters. I also loved that the first two letters Gho-Ghi and Kho Khi translate as Chicken and Egg which throws my little humour into the mix as in what do these two together conjures up to you!?

This work will be inspiring my 2018 work very much so as I feel these paintings are what I have been looking

Temple in Abstraction in a hand painted frame

I had great fun with this unique idea of painting and making up these frames to place the art within. The use of gold leaf in the paintings made its way onto the frames them selves which nicely compliment the art and makes for a fun light work for your wall

These painting are mounted with Truvue Ultravue Glass which  blocks 92% UV and has less than 1% light reflection and the mount board is conservation white core.

All to look their best!
