A West Sussex artist who discovered his talent only when recovering from a life-threatening condition, will be exhibiting an unusual twist to his acrylic art in a pre-Christmas exhibition.

Martin Nee from Partridge Green, near Horsham, will be at the South Downs Heritage Centre in Hassocks over the weekend of November 16-17.

Stationed in the tourist attraction’s coffee shop (where there will also be a weekend of beer tasting), Martin is offering people very personal artworks.

Martin explained: “I am giving people the chance to place items dear to their heart into a piece of my art.”

Called ‘Enduring Memories’ the idea offers a special way to present happy memories in art form.

“Your memory can be concealed in a way that you choose”, he added. “So that only you know it’s there, or in full view for everyone to see.”

He envisages a small token of a memorable moment, or something sacred, being captured in a piece of his highly unusual sensual and tactile art.

Martin said: “We use resin poured over our artwork to lock in any item you may wish.

“You are only limited by the size of the item… and your imagination.”
