Martin Mull, the Duty to Remember

What an impressive exhibition: 23 Oil on panel, oil on linen, charcoal on paper, graphite on paper, small size or large size! LA-based artist Martin Mull continues to blow us away with his numerous skills: “My work is all about tensions: between colors, textures and edges, between figures and symbols.” says Martin Mull. Yes indeed, this is brilliant.

“Never forget to better move on” could be the subliminal message behind each piece of art Mull is painting for us.

Martin Mull’s imagery of scenes from the past, is actually helping us, people from America, to understand where all this come from.

Because what we must pay attention to, of course, is the content, the stories, year after year, Martin Mull tells us.

Psychology has taught us that we must know our past to understand it, to move forward stronger, and without fear. This is also true for the people as a whole, as a nation, than it is for an individual. People need to know the great History to better grow as a nation in the same way that they need to know their family history to grow better.

The artist teaches the “Duty to Remember” of a country with regard to its citizens at a time when zapping, speed and globalization pace the World.

Martin Mull is now part of our Ultimate artist selection. BCh
