Over the past five years, painter Martha Neaves has been creating two large bodies of work: a body of allegorical paintings that merge the worlds of mythical vision with emerging and popular science and a series of non-objective paintings that she created using both hands simultaneously. The artist begins with a dream or vision, and uses the written word, drawings and three-dimensional, geometrical interpretations of dream space as a foundation for her painting.

About the Artist

She has taught in public schools, operated a private art academy and studio and now devotes herself to her work as a painter and sculptor. Her work is exhibited in several galleries throughout North Carolina. Her work has been published in the book The New Mosaic by D.T. Dawson, and she is the illustrator for the novel Tapestry by Hunter D. Darden.
