The Martin Laurence Collection
Martin Laurance began his career as an engraver and graphic designer, attending art school classes in portrait sculpture and life drawing before taking a B.Ed. in Art and Design. Born in the Middle East, Martin's early childhood experiences of light, heat and colour are ingrained in his landscapes, giving them a zest. Martin paints in oil, acrylic and mixed media. His works are colourful and energetic, with a richly textured surface built up to convey movement, weight and depth. His work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout Europe, and is also represented in the Print Loan Collection, Sainsbury Centre, University of East Anglia.
