An Interview with Martin Blank
AN INTUITIVE ARTIST
“I am an intuitive artist. I work on the way forms relate to each other to cut a line in space that flows, turns and carries the eye around the piece. The forms reveal a negative space that is as vital and potent as the actual objects. My sculptural work is as much about the void as the mass”– Martin Blank.
