Martin Webb’s work comes from thoughts about people and places; about permanence and impermanence; about notions of home and belonging. For some time now he’s used the recurring motifs of boats, houses, and travelers, to reflect on life’s journeys, arrivals, and moorings. This pondering of things coastal also led to images of whales and fish is a few paintings, though he is not sure what they signify beyond the presence of other life more ancient and timeless than our own.
