Statement

Deborah Martin is an artist and independent curator based in Southern California. Her artistic work examines the complexities of individual experience particularly in relation to home, isolation and memory. Much of her practice emerges in collaborative conversation with writers and poets, taking form through exhibitions and publications. For the past several years she has been collaborating with the Los Angeles poet and literary critic Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut.

Her latest project: Portraits of Autism explores the relationship and impact autistic children have within their immediate family. The intent of this new body of work is to create a platform for social awareness while opening up a discussion about available support systems and funding for both children and adults diagnosed on the Spectrum. Each Portrait focuses in part on relationship, connection and methods of communication. This ongoing series follows the process a family goes through as their autistic child becomes an adult when access to Federally mandated funding is discontinued at the age of 21.

Martin's work has been featured in numerous publications including art ltd., Palm Springs Life Arts + Culture, Fabrik, Provincetown Arts, Angeleno, Building Provincetown and New American Paintings. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. She is a recipient of the Orlowsky Freed Foundation Grant. Martin received her BFA and BS Masters of Arts in Teaching, Art Education from The Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University.
