Welcome to the website of Australian artist Jeff Martin. Jeff is fundamentally an observer
and visual storyteller. He works in series and each series tells a story.
In his most recent body of work titled Back of House (2007 – Current), Jeff takes his audience on a rare journey behind the scenes of the commercial kitchen.
Following two highly successful Back of House exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, portraying 30 kitchens of Australia’s finest restaurants, Jeff embarked on Back of House - World. He has been granted privileged access to the kitchens of world-renowned restaurants such as Noma in Copenhagen and Per Se in New York.
The first twelve paintings of the Back of House - World were exhibited in March 2012 as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. The exhibition was then transported to London’s Guildhall to feature at the 50 Best Restaurant awards in April 2012.
The purpose of this website is to serve as a visual archive of the work and process behind the art of Jeff Martin. The site is archived annually by the National Library of Australia.
Thank you for visiting.
