This display presents a range of Fergus Martin’s work from the 1990s to the present. Through painting, sculpture and photography, Martin elicits geometric forms that give shape to his preoccupation with space, colour, tension and materials.
This showcase of Martin’s recent and older work includes Untitled – from Six Paintings for le Confert Moderne, Poitiers (1996) from the IMMA Collection, Sky (2016) and Screw Protruding Tubes (2018), a new plastic wall-mounted sculpture. Through painting, sculpture and photography, At the heart of his work is an attempt to palpably impart the density and weight of things, their sense of compression or their expansion.
The Then and Now series is a curatorial approach exploring works in the IMMA Collection where artists are invited to place their early work among their current practice.
