Spirit - Martin D Hyde - Solo Art Exhibition




Martin Hyde is a contemporary artist based in Ashbourne in the Peak District. He creates expressive abstract paintings using acrylic on canvas.

Martin’s work is about life as a person living with depression, those around him, and his place in the world; the highs, the lows – love, loss, mood, isolation, place and belonging, since being diagnosed with cyclic depression at the age of 30.

Through his paintings, Martin wants to bring a better understanding and acceptance of the issues surrounding depression, and the difficulties for those who love them, based on his own experiences. Martin wants to explore some of these issues though the visual language he has created through his paintings.

Spirit represents a journey through two years of the artist life featuring 50 paintings.
