Martin Platt - 1984 Oil, Street Scene at Dusk

Item Sold


Martin Platt - Original 1984 Oil. In an unswept wooden frame. Signed and dated. On board. Some minor abrasions to paint surface, particularly towards lower-right corner.

Martin was inspired in his early 20s to try oil painting, after meeting a lady who was painting copies of Rembrandt’s works. This led him on a journey of self-teaching using books in the local library to explore the work and techniques of artists from the past. Early interests were (Henry) Rousseau and Van Gogh, and on to the impressionists, Picasso and Braque, the expressionists, the abstract artists, and many more - in fact anything and everything. He came to love Australian art, and in particular Dobell and Herman, whose painting style and intent he greatly admired. He currently works in oils, mostly with a palette knife. His subject matter can be anything - a landscape, the weather or seasons, houses, portraits, harbour scenes - and though finding an inspiring subject is most important for getting started and keeping on track, it quickly becomes a secondary consideration for the most part. Martin is a Dunedin artist. He and his wife own a small farm on the Taieri.
