Martha Prideaux

"My work uses oil paint mixed liberally with cold wax medium to create surfaces that evoke a weathered, organic, or historic feeling. The beginning is process-driven and then as the surface develops, I think of a fleeting memory, place, and/or feeling that helps guide the painting to a compositional resolution. I feel that imposing structure or form on the randomly created surface creates paintings that are existential and explore the effects, limitations, and power of human choice." -- Martha Prideaux
