Reviews

Cohn Drennan Contemporary, 2013

“Best in show was Nan Martin’s middle torso drawing in black trailing wire, like rhythmic charcoal on disappearing white paper. An interplay of shape and form, shadows and black on white. I have a shot of the buttocks alone that makes me think in a simple complexity of two and three dimensions intermingled in space, like what sculpture is all about.” J.R. Compton, Dallas Arts Revue

Keller City Hall, 2017

“Coated wire formed human titled “caught” by Nan Martin. There is a weight of sorrow with this piece, and ultimately, we think art should make the viewer feel something. Well executed, thought-provoking, balanced, engaging.” Alberto and Mary Tomas with Mary Tomas Gallery, Dallas, Texas
