Angels are a central motive in his current works.
One does not see at first glance. Peter Martin's images present humans resembling angels.
In an expressionistic painting technique, the author depicts humans who have lost their strength and are seeking comfort and help. The paintings show people shrouded by wings, their protective feathers hovering over them.
Martin expressionistically attempts to merge the worlds of humanity and the angels. Through this overlapping, the viewer believes he or she is seeing an angel.
The paintings are like a bridge paving the way to human hope.
Martin's works provoke and stir one to reflect at the same time. Only at second glance does one realize the positive message concealed beneath the surface.
