About Martin Leslie

Martin Leslie Layton

MARTIN DIED ON 31.01.11 IN HIS SLEEP

Martine liked to call his work "Dimensionism". He enjoyed taking the Unknown and placing it in the known, the unfamiliar with the familiar and visa versa. The object was to make you think and even at times to confuse the mind.
People like to call his work Realistic Surrealism, but he preferred the Realistic Dimensionism as he took objects, etc and moved them from one dimension to another. His work is not that of the subconscious mind or dreamlike state.
The work is there to not only confuse but to make one think. Although most of his work does have a theme basis, you are welcome to interpret his works for yourself as well. As one enthusiastic collector of his works says "if it tickles your eye and makes you think then it is meant for you"

Price Range

US$ 1,656-1,656
