Bess Martin United Kingdom
Multidisciplinary, installation and interactive artist.
From professional training in drawing and painting, to darkroom processes, woodworking, sculptural techniques and even a career as a life-model my practice development has been well-rounded, varied and uniquely multidisciplinary. Working formally with 2D techniques I progressed to 3D through photographic sculptures, paper and textile works and have more recently gained experience with contemporary technological processes, digital media and interactive art.
I find human interaction and curiosity inspiring and my practise very much focuses on this, creating inviting interactive works that sit playfully within the public space.
Most recently I have started to go back to traditional techniques - the processes that first inspired my creativity - and am combining these with the contemporary, inclusive, interactive and explorative approach to work-making that I have found such a strong footing in.
