This week’s inspiration comes from Daniel Martin, a Netherlands-based artist whose work has been exhibited around the world.
Daniel Martin creates his work by the deformation and recreation of matter. He casts his sculptural paintings by the mastery of chance and mistakes. His collage portraits breathe a universe of undiscovered human artifacts and transmutational structures.
His unique style incorporates sculpturesque elements into transformative collages that are somehow both familiar and completely abstract.
We love how Daniel used the Grace template to allow his work to stand out on its own. The Grace template is optimized for photographers and artists to showcase their creations, and Daniel has used it to create a beautiful, virtual gallery.
The clean layout, white background, and absence of distraction all work together to allow his audience to absorb his work unfettered. Daniel’s site transports the viewer to the showroom floor, and the simple layout then lets them peruse his striking art leisurely, piece by piece.
Another nice touch is how he balanced the photos so well: pure closeups of individual pieces; wider shots that include framing, environmental context, or multiple works; and – our favorite – the photos that include observers. That’s such an interesting way of feeding our desire for voyeurism while also subtly emphasizing his success as an accomplished artist.
Well done, Daniel! 👏
