Painted is gestural, abstract, and informal. Wildly naive, occasionally chaotic paintings about the presence of being and the ontology of material. What is the difference between an entire mountain, and a grain of sand, and the sound of water bubbling over a boulder in a creek, and the start of the universe? Chemically? Nothing. Observationally? Everything. Time is the source material and how we can choose to intervene and overlay meaning into things where there wasn’t meaning before. These credenzas and storage pieces don’t have any paint, yet are painted in a sense. Simple household chemicals, and artist fabricated chemical reactions are applied spontaneously to wood causing it to age or bleach rapidly, creating a painterly effect.
Pre fabricated, ultra coordinated Painted installations for but not limited to: bathrooms, fireplaces, spas, lobbies, stairwells, feature walls, kitchens, and millwork. Featuring clandestine storage, perforated and integrated light sources in the walls, intelligent sculpture functionality for toothbrushes, dishes, tools, towels, hampers, and whatever you can imagine.
Working within the robust framework of expansive healing, mindfulness, and nature the studio at Jeff Martin Joinery presents some ideals based solutions for furniture and experience to promote peace, wellness, and connection with terroire for “moments of discovery” where enlightened site specific sculpture heighten engagement of our interaction with nature and stoic pensive thought.
