Martin Cail


“You’ve got to just put down color and start chasing it.” Says Kansas City native Martin Cail. Forever identifying as a colorist Cail graduated with a BFA in ceramics from the University of Central Missouri and an MFA in sculpture from Ohio State, when color didn’t play a major role in that particular medium, in the 1990s. Starting his artistic career with sculpture and that process of physicality and control Cail has moved towards having less direct power over the outcome of the work and in finding that balance the ink on white board collection allows the viewer to identify and grow with each piece individually.
