While the parts make up the whole, the whole is always greater than the sum of the parts
The main point of reference for Martin stems from his interest in both geometry and mathematics. The square, the circle are the main constructive aids through which his ideas acquire visible form. Regarding his work as organic rather than formulaic he conveys a passion for the wonderful and abstract world of the coded number, in particular, binary code.
Blurring the boundaries between printmaking and sculpture Martin has formulated and abstracted each individual binary code into a series of highly symbolic geometric forms. These geometric forms to him represent order in nature; furthermore they have opened up a pathway for him to express his feelings, allowing him freedom of expression in abstract form, conceptual imagery and awareness.
