|“Limit gives form to the limitless. All things are numbers.” Pythagoras.
Can art be found in numbers?
This is the question that has directed the artistic output from Martin Nelson.
However, I cannot help thinking in terms of the unknown, the unforeseeable territory in which I have entered, one whereby nothing is concrete or absolute. Rather the opposite, one that is totally unpredictable and obscure. I derive a great deal of satisfaction when seeing an idea work, and the delights of serendipity, the discovery of something new and unforeseen to me during an enquiry that appeared to be heading elsewhere.
Martin Nelson’s work has been exhibited across the UK both in solo and group exhibitions. Nelson’s work is recognisably collected nationally and internationally.
