“One’s greatest wound becomes one’s most profound blessing; the deep opening to the soul through which grace and creativity pour both ways to heal ourselves and others…Martin compels us, dares us, to make exactly that transformation in our wounded selves.”

Joyce Nelson, The Sacrament of the Flesh

“Martin’s androgynous bodies are an explosive celebration of pure sexuality not restricted by gender.”

Vicki Henry (Ufundi Gallery director), catalogue notes. Wrapture, Ufundi Gallery, 1990.
