Martin Conley, a third-generation Oregonian, works in wood sculpture. He studied sculpture at the University of Oregon and worked as a contractor, and working with wood commercially taught him much about making his sculpture.–Grey Raven Gallery.
Martin Conley is co-founder of the Grey Raven Gallery, which raises funds and awareness for the important work of his Hillsboro non-profit Golden Road Arts, providing free art lessons for elementary and middle school students. An artist Doing Good Works ™.
When contemplating a new piece of natural wood, Conley lets his intuition guide him and starts carving. Negative spaces, the parts he carves away are as important as the positive space, the wood that remains. He wants the eye to travel in and out to appreciate the cavities, colors and textures of the wood.” — GRG
