“If Peter Blake is the Paul McCartney of collage, then O’Neill is its Tom Waits, a pre-digital artist for a post-digital age. “ John L Walters. Eye Magazine. Eye 69.
Martin’s work evolves from a subtle alchemy of collage, photography, silkscreen, paint & digital techniques. 20 years of hands on studio experimentation has resulted in his unique and instantly recognisable brand of image making.
Coming from a printmaking background Martin has a range of approaches to collage making. From subtle layering of ink and paint to pop photomontage and unique hand cut typography. A constantly moving array of processes & media fuel his investigative practice.
In 1994 Martin returned from 3 months Art school study in Germany with two suitcases of found paper, over the last 20 years this has grown into a vast collection of pictorial and textural reference material. Commercial practice led the collection to be divided into loosely labelled sections. Plan-chests, filing cabinets & shoe boxes house 1000’s of collected clippings and elements - an analogue Google images. Alongside this sits an extensive digital archive of scanned, photographed and hand treated material.
