This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter whose visual vocabulary has gone through many phases but who, in the 21st century, is focused on trees, rocks and water, which, for Cameron Martin, is a return to that which made deep impressions on him while growing up in Seattle, Washington.   He said:  "I was surrounded by the imagery of nature.  There was an element of grandeur, of the sublime.  It was something you couldn't overcome, something which contained awe, beauty, and terror." (Tandem Press)

In the early 1990s, he went East, attending Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and there he became more focused personally on pop culture, something to which he could easily relate because in his youth, he had been a member of a rock band and a competitive skateboarder. 

In the mid 1990s, he moved to Brooklyn, New York and was selected for the Whitney Independent Study Program.  He was much influenced in his artwork by photographs, especially those of Edward Weston, Carleton Watkins and Roger Fenton, and used images of pop ads such as ones for tobacco, beer, movies and clothes. 

Then several years later, he received a Giverny, France Residency, where he could study on the property that had been the home of Claude Monet.  His main expressed interest there was on his own collection of Japanese ukiyo-e prints and not on Monet's gardens.

Returning to landscape features, Cameron Martin uses oil, acrylic and "interference paint", which is used in automobile detail painting and produces a luminous, metallic shine.
