Artist Martin Chittum

Martin Chittum

Homer, NY, USA


Martin Chittum is an interdisciplinary artist and musician currently based in central New York state. Working primarily in experimental photography and mixed media sculpture/installation, he has been exhibiting since 2015. He has traveled extensively in China, which has both informed his practice and provided a rich source of material for his work. He holds an MFA in Studio Art from University at Buffalo. Statement: I freely play with a variety of analog and digital photographic mediums with the goal being to bring out the emergent qualities of the image that are only partially within my control. Often, a photo will be captured with large format film cameras, and then scanned and digitally manipulated. The result will then either be an alt process print or archival inkjet print. My preference is toward alt process printing, because this introduces a new environment for something special to emerge. Printing with precious metals and earth pigments brings a connection to Renaissance alchemists and the earliest art of cave paintings, creating a unique piece that will last millennia. The subject matter may vary, but the base theme of emergent qualities from complex systems is always present. My current body of work is concerned with the relationship between humanity and the emergent world around us.
