Gallery Hijinks Artist: Martin Machado

Close Bio

Martin creates work that reflects his experiences in the world, mainly reflecting on time spent at sea through various job opportunities as a merchant marine, commercial fisherman, and sailor. With a bad habit of constantly experimenting with various mediums and materials, I, I mean Martin, recreates these experiences through the use of photography, paint, video, film, as well as materials more commonly found around ships such as epoxy, fiberglass, and seawater. Common themes in his work are: the passing and compression of time, labor, leisure, theatricality, escapism, and the ever-changing west.
