Raewyn Martyn

Raewyn Martyn is an artist living in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. She works in attentive occupation of sites and situations to produce works that change over time, challenging stability and temporality of painted surface, medium, and site. Surface often transforms into material, decomposing, reconfiguring and reproducing. Raewyn has an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from VCUArts, VA. and was visiting assistant professor at Antioch College OH, and a researcher at Jan van Eyck Academy in NL. She is a PhD candidate at Massey University College of Creative Arts.
