Changes, contradictions and contrasts. The art of Martin Leigh does not sit still in one style or technique, but instead adapts and changes in order to explore the points where the natural and man-made collide. His art shows the change of the season and the effects that this has on the environment around us. Formally a professional photographer, Leigh now devotes his time to making art and has gained a great deal of success, exhibiting widely across the UK and in Germany. In his work a bridge ages and hangs in the point between rustic beauty and collapse. A bubble sits implausibly on the rough centre of an orange flower, waiting to burst. The outline of a fish is blended with the stylised background to create an artificial camouflage. In other works he explored the limits of abstraction, showing the feeling of a choppy sea and a rioting garden foliage. His photography and mixed media skills allow him to explore many themes and ideas and create an incredibly interesting and varied collection of work.
