British artist, Martin Webb, first laid eyes upon the American West when he was awarded a Fulbright teaching exchange that brought him to the San Francisco East Bay in 1999-2000. He and his wife, Liz, immediately fell in love with the open space, the intimate connection to nature, the relaxed, artistic atmosphere, and in 2000 immigrated from their home in the U.K. to Berkeley, where he accepted a position in commercial design. Eventually he was able to dedicate himself fully to his career and has since earned a reputation as a brilliant painter, sensitive to his surrounding environment – both manmade and nature – the immigrant experience, “permanence and impermanence”.

"I’m always fascinated by people’s relationship with the land and time, how the natural and manmade landscape records people’s movements and stories, and in particular the way that things we regard as solid and permanent are actually temporary, in flux, and part of a continuum much larger than ourselves." –Martin Webb
