GARY MARTIN "I began painting at the age of three in an attempt to cover up some finger marks I’d left on the wall."

"The outcome was disastrous and the resultant thrashing left me reluctant to ever lift a brush again. This situation continued until, due to a misunderstanding with an overcoated gentleman in a bar, I inadvertently discovered psychedelia. Since that third eye opening experience I have been restlessly searching for inspiration, enlightenment and good quality coffee. When I throw paint about I am generally trying to emulate the sound of the Brian Jonestown Massacre on canvas. My lawyer is still wondering if I have achieved this."
