Martin Lambuth’s paintings are about more than the subject matter of vintage trucks and trains. It’s about nostalgia, history and the stories they inspire by viewers. Although lost in time or forgotten in the weeds, they can still take you on a ride to grandpa’s farm, bumping down a country road in dad’s pickup, or riding the rail through the past.
Martin paints with credit cards instead of brushes or palette knife, making his style unique. This technique lends itself to the weather-influenced finishes created by exposure, rust and oxidation. His paintings invoke a sense of realism at a distance but up close you see the abstraction and interplay of loose textures buried in layers of rich color.
An award-winning artist, Martin has been juried into a variety of local, regional and national art shows in Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, Montana and Idaho.
His work in permanent corporate collections include JAMS Denver, Cheyenne Depot Museum, The Children’s Hospital in Denver and Parker, as well as being selected as the anchor piece for the Kaiser Permanente medical center in Castle Rock, Colorado.
