Works by Marcus Mårtenson

Works by Marcus Mårtenson at Garde Rail Gallery in Seattle, WA. "...Old traditional religious art from medieval churches in Sweden inspires me a lot, particularly the art by the painter Albertus Pictor. It was common that interiors of whole churches where painted in a naive style telling both the stories of the bible and other folktales to farmers and others who where not literate in Latin, the language that the bible was written in at that time. I'm often inspired by these old stories but I try to find a modern expression for them."
