Martin Herbert

Martin Herbert

Martin Herbert is a maker of objects. Sometimes they are sculpture but they could also be racing sailboats, musical instruments or machines for converting one object into another. He has spent his entire working life at the narrow points where art, theatre, music and sport intersect.

Now retired he makes only objects that amuse him. His work is not for sale, he is not in the gallery system and doesn’t accept commissions. Since moving to Saltspring Island he has built his dream studio and goes to “Play” every day. In addition to this he draws “from Life” five hours a week just to stay tuned up.

For this show/event he will be making three sister pieces, one of which will eventually be selected to step out into the world.
