A series of twelve 36 x 36 and eighteen 9 x 9 acrylic paintings and a limited set of eighteen numbered glicee prints. Also an array of hand painted pins. Martin departs from the landscape theme of his previous collection of works.

Martin ruminates the nature of families in all their dysfunctional glory.

His colourful, childlike characters with their manic, depraved expressions and hollow laughter plot seduction and farewell simultaneously. The family world is a circus of human vanities. The lively use of colour elevates emotions, providing an element to ease the viciousness of the underlying mix.
