"Martin’s paintings are titled after popular songs by artists such as 2Pac, Madonna, and the
Smiths, and ostensibly serve as interpretations of the songs’ lyrics. At the same time, the
paintings are imbued with an ineffable symbolic code, falling somewhere between the pagan and
the biblical, the art-historical and the collective subconscious."
