Martine Vanderspuy

“Martine has experimented with many different mediums. Resin however has become her favourite and principal medium of experimentation and creativity. The medium is fluid in nature and extremely difficult to work with as it constantly moves making it a challenge to capture the colour and fluidity of the final composition. Using many layers, the resin creates vibrancy, colour and clarity, the shadows and the glint of light on water. The tactile nature and depth of the resin almost allows you to dive into the artwork. Martine aims to create artworks that lift people’s spirits by viewing the ever changing ocean, creating a window to the sea. A percentage of sales will be donated to Mitochondrial Disease (Mito) research. Mito is a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and potentially death. The mortality rate in children is roughly that of cancer. Martine’s youngest son Tom has Mito. It is a driving force behind the gallery. Martine has in the past hosted fundraising events in her own home and to date she has raised over $230,000 for research. Her passion is to support finding a cure for many by using her talents as an artist.” –
