An interview with artist Martin Heron
What form of art or media do you work with?
Mainly sculpture using wood, metal or stone but also plaster, paint, paper and found objects.
Can you describe your studio/work space.
My studio is a work in progress place to play, ponder and produce.
Can you please give a brief description of your creation process and technique.
To complicated to contemplate! My work varies greatly hence processes and techniques vary. Design work through research, ideas through drawing, maquettes through carving, casting and construction.
What are you working on at the moment?
A public art commission in Scotland.
How do you know when a work is complete?
When I have exhausted the possibilities or there is a deadline to be met!
Do you listen to music when you are working, or the radio, or work in silence?
I tend to work in silence.
Please complete the following sentences in whatever way is meaningful to you:
a) Artists should always look on the bright side!
b) Art is the greatest thing, the oldest yet the latest thing!
c) The World is a great big onion.
What is the worst thing someone has said about your work?
That it should be burned.
Who is your favourite German Expressionist painter?
Thank you Martin.
