Julian Martin’s new solo exhibition at No Vacancy Project Space showcases a selection of recent abstract and figurative works from his extensive oeuvre, united by Martin’s trademark rich velvety surfaces. This two week exhibition is part of a prize awarded to Julian Martin who received first place in last year's State Trustees' Connected exhibition.
This exhibition is held at the No Vacancy Project Space in Federation Square, Melbourne. The event opens on Thursday 1 Oct from 6pm.
Julian Martin's works were exhibited at the AFTER exhibition, hosted by Arts Project Australia and curated by Penelope Hunt.
After... explores how images can be reinterpreted and insightfully transformed into unique artworks in their own right. All artists look at and respond to the work of other artists. Whether for insights, inspiration, as study techniques or for the sheer love and intrigue around another's work, artists take cues from each other. The Arts Project studio is no different.
This event is supported by Leonard Joel, and Art Guide.
Julian's artwork has just been acquired by Deakin University, for their well-respected Victorian Collection. This is a great way to finish off a fabulous year with a number of significant achievements.
Deakin University’s Art Collection, consists of around 1600 diverse pieces, and has been in existence since the University’s inception. The works include a collection of paintings, ceramics and sculpture and most of the collection is contemporary in nature. The older works in the collection have either been donated to the University or came to the University via its antecedent institutions. This structured and well balanced collection represents works of art of excellence and significance by principally Australian contemporary artists, in a wide range of media.
Congratulations Julian for achieving the first prize award for this year's State Trustees Connected Art Exhibition. As Julian's family, we are absolutely delighted for his success and would like to acknowledge the continued commitment from Arts Project Australia for their support and involvement.
